  nasmichael: He wins with black because he is Bogoljubov.

The bridge with rook and king in the endgame is reminiscent to Lucena's Position.

The basics do work, I guess.

Nice commentary from Maroczy, who is annotating the game.

Nov-08-06  schaduw2: Tartakower plays a reversed “Lion’s Claw” (the Lion System with white). An example of a white players who succeeds in his attack is the next game:

  GrahamClayton: The opening for White is also called the "Tayler Opening" or the "Inverted Hanham"

  naresb: With 10. h4 White under-estimated Black's defensive resources leading to structural weakness near his King side.

After 33... fxe4, 'e4' wasn't the place White need to trade the pieces.
