Dec-08-04  kostich in time: I once interloaned a crumbling copy of Tartakovers great work, Der Hypermoderne Scachpartie from the UCLA library. ( Iwas a grad student at the University of Virginia.)The Book is a collection of the best games of chess played between 1919 and 1925, together with witty portraits of all the top players, opening analysis, etc. This wonderfully lucid game is the one he uses to illustrate Vidmars style.

  Benzol: 34...gxh6 35.♖xh6+ ♖h7 36.♕g7# is a nice finish.
Jun-10-06  Maynard5: It is interesting to compare this game with Vidmar-Yates, San Remo, 1930. In that game, eight years later, Yates also played the Queen's Gambit Declined, but his defensive ideas were much more effective.

  Benzol: <Milo> Maroczy in the tournament book gives 25...♗xd5 26.♖xh7 ♔xh7 27.♕h3+ ♔g8 28.♖h4 ♔f8 29.♖h8+ ♕g8 30.♘xd5 wins.
Jul-30-14  Nerwal: In Le Lionnais' book on Brillancy Prizes, 25. d5 and 29. ♘xf6+ both get two exclams, then the author rightly quotes <The Field> that 30... ♕xb2! draws. Well, Black getting a drawing opportunity from that gloomy position rather indicates the attack has been conducted incorrectly. The right plan seems to be instead 25. ♕h3 h6 26. ♖fg4 ♔h7 27. ♘e2 Δ ♘f4, ♘h5, ♘xg7.
