  Honza Cervenka: Winawer sacrificed his bishop for two pawns and promising strong attack but Tarrasch defended his position excellently and won through a counter-attack.

  Honza Cervenka: 39...Nf5 with next 40...Ne3 won at once.

  Honza Cervenka: If 30.e5 then 30...Bg5 and 31...Nf4. After 30.d5 Tarrasch was prepared to play 30...cxd5 31.Nxd5 Rxd5 32.exd5 Nf4 33.Rg4 Qf5 with attack of black.
Apr-06-07  fred lennox: Rhis game shows Tarrasch's defensive skills. 12.h5 looks like a good move as it restricts blacks queen for some time. The advanced h pawn becomes a downfall with resourceful play.
Mar-24-14  Poulsen: This was Tarrasch last win in the tournament - he cruised into victory with 2 short draws in the last 2 rounds against players he would normally beat with relative ease.

Maybe he wanted to play it safe after being put under some pressure in this game. Also the first rounds had given him a somewhat shaky start - including the 4th round loss to Albin.

His performance here in Dresden was, according to Chessmetrics, not as good as his performances in Breslau 1889 and Manchester 1890, but that would change had he won the last 2 games as well.

It is not unlikely, that he was in fact stronger than Lasker at this point in time - but hey, what can one do other than win tournaments?
