Onkel K├╝bel gives 19... Rd5 an exclamation mark. Call me a miserly materialist, a Republican and a philistine, but I don't see anything wrong with 20.b4 ..

  perfidious: <sneaky pete> Your fellow materialistic Republican philistine likes the look of 20.b4 too. Tartakower may also have considered fianchettoing his king to untangle, after which I don't see what Black has for the pawn. In any case, there was no need to hurry to exchange queens. Easy for us to say, though.

Sep-03-13  JoergWalter: 48....Ta5 49.g3 Ra6 50.Kc3 and white should be winning according to Smyslov/Levenfish. (49.g4?)

  Telemus: According to Tartakower in the tournament book, page 114, he played 1.c4/2.d4 (instead of 1.d4/2.d4 above).
