Nov-22-06  Mocafi: 19.Re8 maybe?with mate threats on e1 and e2
Nov-22-06  TrueFiendish: Ne5 should be okay for white.
Jun-17-11  dull2vivid: The early cxd in th Tarrasch Defense, if black doesn't take with the f6N, is winning when followed up by Bg5xNf6. There are of course exceptions to the general rule. But what a lovely rule.
