Jul-25-04  InspiredByMorphy: What a game! Tarrasch commits a suicidal error with 17.c3? and Perlis misses his chance with 17. ... Be5! Threatening mate. 18.Kg2 Qxh2+ wins a pawn. 19.Kf3 Qf4+ 20.Ke2 d5 threatens to open the e file for blacks queen rook and win a pawn. If 21.exd5 Rad8 wins. Maybe Tarrasch saw this sequence of moves after playing 17.c3? and seeing his opponent missed it, thought he would play 18.Kg2 anyway. There was no need to play it at that point though, and the sane 18.Kh1 looked a lot better. Its almost as if he feared if he played 18.Kh1 his opponent would play ... Bxf2? this move loses the bishop though after 19.Qe2 Im puzzled, but Tarrasch does play very strong from there on.
Jul-25-04  samvega: 17..Be5 could be met by 18.Qh5.

I believe white plays 18.Kg2 to support 19.Qf3, perceiving that the exchange of queens leads to a favourable endgame due to the weak black pawns at c6 and d6.

Nov-10-10  centralfiles: 13...♘f4!? seems to give Black excellent chances as the f-pawn crams White i.e. 14.♘e2 ♕g5+ 15.♘g3 ♗xd4 16.c3? ♕h4 Δ...♕h3 or 14.♔h1 ♗xd4 15.♘e2 ♘xe2 16.♕xe2 ♗xb2 and Black seems more comfortable
Nov-23-10  centralfiles: Fritz recommends 16..Qh6 instead of 16...Qh4 I gave in the line above, to prevent 17.Qd2.(now Black just plays 17..Nh3+ picking up the queen).
