Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-25-04  suenteus po 147: Why does Spielmann resign here? Why not 22...Qe6 to force an exchange of queens? Is it purely material deficiency that forces Spielmann's resignation?
Mar-25-04  vangogh228: I was kind of wondering the same thing, but I think he can also force a trade of pieces, or rooks 22)...Qe6, 23)Qxe6 Rxe6, 24)Bh3. A rook and knight alone won't stand up to two passed pawns, being outnumbered 6-2, and if the trades continue, he's doomed for sure.
Mar-26-04  MoonlitKnight: I usually play this "defense" against Bird's opening myself. Black gets a strong kingside attack. Only Tartakower would be crazy enough to castle into that mess.
Jul-26-06  mistergore: tartakower is a crazy man

  keypusher: Er, I mean black can take all of the fun out of the game for *white* (although the resulting position probably isn't a barrel of laughs for Black either).
Feb-27-09  YoungEd: It's true that Black's 6. ...Nc6 wasn't too good.
Aug-31-10  igiene: Black can't exchange Queens because White is 4 pawns to the good and wins easily
Aug-31-10  paladin at large: Tartakower played some interesting chess and was no pushover.
