  gah: 18 Qd3 appears to win a piece. Why did Tarrasch not play it?
Nov-19-13  Granny O Doul: gah: It doesn't win a piece because White's own Bc2 is under attack.
Nov-19-13  offramp: Black was playing the endgame not realizing that white was still playing the middle game.
May-03-19  zydeco: Tarrasch almost never played 1.d4. Maybe he felt Chigorin was too booked-up in the Ruy Lopez and would come up with some half-baked scheme in a queen's pawn opening.

Chigorin is better for most of the middlegame. 27....Nxf4 is an interesting idea in his imaginative style.
