  Honza Cervenka: Tarrasch was not afraid of exchange on f3 as he believed that open g-file and Bishop pair would be more than sufficient compensation for damaged Pawn structure and Ks weaknesses like in Tarrasch vs J Noa, 1887 where the same had happened in slightly different position. Black did not take on f3 here but still he fell under powerful attack. The finish is lovely.
Apr-04-20  brimarern: Beautiful game! As stated above, 19. Rg2 is the start of everything. 30.Rf3 is nice!
