  Honza Cervenka: Pretty wild game. White could have played also 26.Qxh6! Qa1+ (26...gxh6 27.Rxh7#) 27.Rg1 Qxg1+ 28.Kxg1 gxh6 29.Rxh7+

  akiba82: Tarrasch points out that he could have played 25.cxd4 and if 25... Re1+ 26. Bf1, the queen being immune because of Black's weak back rank.

  Mateo: Some nice moves from Tarrasch, even if I don't understand why his opponent gave up two pawns in the middle game (22...Re8? and 23...Qa5?).
