Feb-27-09  YoungEd: So many of Tartakower's opponents play an early ...c5 and ...♘c6. Note that Tartakower almost always exchanges ♗ for ♘ on c6, and then gets total control of e5! Just what he wants!

  beatgiant: What's the knockout punch here after, say, 30...g6?
Feb-28-09  YoungEd: Hi, <beatgiant>. I don't know for sure that there's a knockout punch, but I think that 31. hxg6 followed by piling up rooks and queen on the h-file would be pretty dangerous for Black. But who knows. Maybe Black lost on time instead of resigning.

  beatgiant: <YoungEd>
Yes, maybe ...g6 allowing the opening of the h-file concedes too much. But also Black can simply move a rook to dodge the coming Bh4 skewer, e.g. 30...Ra8 and I don't see any immediate breakthrough by White against this.

I think either Black lost on time, or the score and/or result may not be correct.
