  Honza Cervenka: A characteristic game of Tarrasch. I like 18.cxd5! If 18...Bxb2, then 19.Rc4 Qxc4 20.Bxc4 Bxa1 21.Nxa1 Rb1+ 22.Kh2 Rxa1 23.Bd4 Rc1 24.Bxf6 (or 24.Bd3 with next 25.Bxf6 which cannot be prevented with 24...Nd7 for 25.Bxh7+! Kxh7 26.Qxf7 Rg8 27.Qh5#) 24...Rxc4 (24...gxf6 25.Qg3+ Kh8 26.Qxc7 ) 25.Qg3 Bg4 (25...g6 26.Qg5 planning 27.Qh6) 26.Bc3 winning black Bishop and the game.

  Honza Cervenka: 19.Rc2 was not the best move. Instead of 19...Bg4?! black could have played 19...Bb7 with a counter-play. Then 20.Rac1 Nxd5! 21.Rc4 fails for 21...Nf4! 22.Qd1 Nxh3+! as well as pretty 21.Rc5!? Nxe3! 22.Rxe5!? Rxe5! 23.Rxc7 Rf4! 24.Rxb7 g6 25.Qg3 Nxg2! and 20.Qf5 Bxd5 is okay for black. Instead of 19.Rc2 white could have played 19.Bd2 Ra4 (19...Rb8 20.Rc4 Qh5 21.Qxh5 Nxh5 22.Re1 ) 20.Nc5 Bxb2 21.Nxa4 Bxc1 (21...Bxa1 22.Rc4) 22.Rxc1 Qxa4 23.Bc3 Qa3 24.Rc2 with advantage.
