  alexmagnus: Hehe consultaion game four against four, and all of them are top players of that time.. (Pity Steinitz is not there). I imagine today a match Topalov/Karjakin/Fritz/Nakamura vs.Anand/Carlsen/Hydra/Ponomariov :-)

  OhioChessFan: Surely there was a better option than trading Queens and allowing the pawn to b7?

  whiteshark: Ugly weather today. It's raining cats and dogs!
Sep-21-07  Dr. Siggy: Dr. Tarrasch, "The Game of Chess", english transl., London 1935, pages 211-13: - "A typical attack on the Queen's side is very frequently possible when by playing c6/c3 the opponent has given it an objective. The c-pawn is advanced to c5/c4, the b-pawn to b5/b4 and eventually the a-pawn to a6/a3 (if possible). Then the a-pawn is exchanged for the b-pawn and the b-pawn for the enemy pawn at c3/c6. Thus the advanced c-pawn has become a passed one and in addition all kinds of lines of attack are opened. This scheme, which is the main type of Queen's side attack, is employed [...]" in the present game with 10. c5! and so on.

  Honza Cervenka: Pretty instructive game. But black's opening play was very passive and that is why white's plan went quite smoothly here and was very effective. It is hard to imagine such a game to be played between modern GMs or even IMs.
