Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-22-09  ughaibu: Tarrasch's final move is fairly nice. Otherwise, Gunsberg seems to have been getting a little fatalistic.
Dec-06-12  schnarre: ...Tarrasch handled this nicely!
Dec-06-12  fokers13: Wondering if the immediate 32.Rxd4 worked any bettr,white's position seemed so cramped and vulnerable it's really the only move that comes to mind.
Feb-10-15  poorthylacine: Even without analyzing, it seems to me the old Gunsberg had no much hope facing Tarrasch, and so he tried what he thought to be his only chance: to bewilder his opponent by fantasy in the opening...
Feb-10-15  poorthylacine: If 32. Rxd4 exd4 33.Rxd4 Qe1+ 34.Ka2 Nfxe4 35. Bxe4 Rxe4 curtains.
