  whiteshark: Could it be that White was the then 7 y-o Schmidt?

  MissScarlett: White may well be Ludwig Schmitt, as he played in <Munich 1923>, although, apparently, Tarrasch didn't.

  Telemus: <chesslad: This game is given on pages 671-672 of Siegbert Tarrasch: Leben und Werk (Wolfgang Kamm), 2004. It states there that Tarrasch's opponent is in fact Ludwig Schmitt>

It would be interesting to get the primary source. Kamm presents the game with Tarrasch's comments, but I don't see an exact reference.

The comment of 23.. ♗b4 states that the game-score ends here in Bachmann's Schachjahrbuch 1923, p 72. The comment is given in (), which distinguishes it from the other comments. So, it may be an addition of Kamm.

After 23.. ♗b4 the game continues differently than given above: 24.♕xd7 ♖xd7 25.♖b3? ♘d2+ 0-1.

The mate given above is one line in Tarrasch's analysis and he wrote: "[..] auf 24.♕a4 folgt 24.. ♖d1+ 25.♔e2 ♘g1# ein reizendes Matt, das ich in meiner langen Schachpraxis noch nich gesehen habe und deshalb hier abbilde". A diagram follows.
