Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-26-10  WhoKeres: Tarrasch's active play helped him convert the full point. In his prime he was a great attacking and combinational player, due largely to his active style.
May-07-14  estrick: Tarrasch demonstrates that Marshall's two bishops are not better than his two knights plus one pawn.

Then he demonstrates very nice rook + pawns endgame technique beginning on move 31.

Feb-12-19  zydeco: 15.Bd2 is probably more prudent.

It's very hard to win this endgame as black and Tarrasch's technique is impressive. 28....Nd4! is an important shot.

40.g4 is probably the losing move. White tries to create an outside passed pawn but it just turns out to be a weakness.
