Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-15-05  Calli: The best game of the match, IMHO. The middle game looks like an even battle, but Schlechter's 32.f4 begins a long sequence that wins. I am not sure that Tarrasch had any defense.
Jan-15-05  waddayaplay: When white got his bad bishop activated, he got the upper hand. Black should have been more fierce on the king side, going for f5 or h5 followed by g4, and doubling his rook on the g-file.
Jun-27-05  ksadler: Beautiful use of the Queen at the end by Schlechter. 32. f4 was a great move.
Apr-19-12  Anderssen99: 37.Rd3!! is devastating since it leaves Black helpless against: 38.Qxh6+!!,Kxh6. 39.Rh3 mating.
