  tpstar: Dr. Tarrasch thanks you for breaking the Cohn of Silence.

24. Bxh6! is a nice sacrifice on h6 to break through with the major pieces. 28. Rg7 will be decisive; 27 ... Qf8 28. Rg7 Qg8!? (might as well) 29. Rxh7+! Qxh7 30. Qf6+ Qg7 31. Qxg7#.

Mar-06-11  Shams: And obviously the threat of white taking on h6 is why black pitched the exchange on move 17. An unfortunate opening from Mr. Cohn.
Jul-12-14  thom0909: Cohn misses Qb6 at some point (so says Tarrasch in 300 Chess Games). Also, he seems to think Bh4 is a big deal.
