Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-04-11  shalgo: This game should be famous for Tarrasch's Bf7-e7-f8 on moves 4-6.
Jan-04-11  Llawdogg: That was some unusual bishop maneuvering early in the game. But it didn't result in an interesting or memorable game.
Oct-09-11  Robeson: "it didn't result in an interesting or memorable game."

I think you may have played over the moves incorrectly if that's your conclusion.

Feb-01-12  King Death: Facing a disciple of Chigorin, another Black player came up with an original way to meet 3.b3: L Day vs I Kourkounakis, 1980.
Dec-01-14  offramp: After 7...c5

Feb-22-19  Straclonoor: Tarrasch had all chances to increase pressure on Chigorin's position.
