Jul-05-05  Ernesto7: WOW...a real draw...wonderful
Jun-20-07  Dr. Siggy: Although played 75 yers ago, this game remains a very good example of how Black should play the Tarrasch Defense against the still very feared Reti Variation: 9. dxc5 Bxc5 10. Na4.
Jul-08-09  Knight13: 12. a3 and then White should start piling up on that d pawn.

18. Qd2 is better.

May-08-11  Dr. Siggy: According to Mark Taimanov in the 1972 english translation of his monography about the Tarrasch Defense, a simpler equaliser is 11... Re8 12. Rc1 Bg4 13. h3 (if 13. Bc5 Ne4 14. Bxe7 Qxe7 15. Qxd5? Rad8 16. Qb5 Bxf3 17. Bxf3 Nd2! ) Bxf3 14. Bxf3 Qd7 15. Bg2 Rad8 (or 15... d4 16. Bg5 Ne4 17. Bxe7 Qxe7 =, as in Kholmov vs A Lein, 1968) 16. Nc5 Bxc5 17. Bxc5 Ne4 18. e3 Qf5 19. Bd4 Ng5! =, as in Polugaevsky vs A Lein, 1969.
