  Honza Cervenka: After 25...Ra6 Pillsbury in his annotations of the game says: <An error: Rb6 26. Qc5 Bb7 would have saved the Pawn.>

But what can black do after 25...Rb6 26.c4? (diagram)

26...bxc4 27.bxc4 with threats 28.c5 or 28.Rxe5 doesn't keep the material equality for sure and 26...Nb7 27.Rxb5 Rxb5 28.cxb5 leaves white with extra Pawn and clearly superior position despite of doubled b-Pawn.

Jul-28-18  mifralu: 42. Qb2 < ...Nd7 43. Ne3 >

"Tarrasch, sea air and sleep"

C.N. 10017

Jul-28-18  cunctatorg: I don't disagree but ... what was Tarrasch's decisive error?!?

P.S.: where are the H. N. Pillsbury annotations of this game by the way?

Jul-28-18  JimNorCal: I assume Pillsbury's annotations are in the tournament book. Games were annotated by the players but they did not write on their own games. The theory was that this removed bias.
