  IMlday: It was a fun game. The only book I took to Lone Pine was the big Chigorin collection in Russian but it was useful for this opening.
Tarrasch vs Chigorin, 1893
He used a great deal of time trying to find an advantage but the Knight pair and better King balance the 'weak' d-pawn which ends up pretty ferocious after his pooch 30.Ke4? in time pressure. We had another long endgame featuring the backward d6-pawn in NY 81 but he managed the clock much better and drew.
Sep-17-05  Rama: 'Tis' had a good chance with 19. c5 .... Why didn't he try it?

Yes, 30 Ke4 ... was a lemon. And 45 fxg6 ... doesn't work either.

Playing in Lone Pine was by invitation, congratulations.

  IMlday: 19.c5 Ra6 is soon a dry draw. He hadn't left himself enough time to evaluate that a draw was a logical outcome.
