May-05-06  lopium: Why not 27...R8e2? It seems to mate few moves later to me, in 3 possible variations. ...Re2, Qf1 lose for white, queen take queen, if bishop take on f1, then it's mate and if rook take on f1, rook take bishop on g2 with a mate's threat. So I really don't understand the Rde2 move.

Jun-28-06  capanegra: What a nice quote!
Jun-28-06  RookFile: Tarrasch has a great point. Sometimes, the same guy who outright gambit a pawn, is afraid to be left with an isolated d pawn. When you think about it, this doesn't make sense, but it's a truism.

Good thing Bent Larsen didn't listen.

Jun-28-06  LluviaSean: Did Tarrasch really say that? That's reassuring, 'cause I get isolated d-pawns all the time playing the QGD Tarrasch.
