Aug-15-05  notyetagm: Oh, how I love the <discovered pin> tactic. Here Black cannot play 21 ... ♖fd8? because of the <nasty discovered pin> 22 ♘xf7+! ♖xf7 23 ♖xd8+, winning the exchange and a pawn. By playing 21 ... ♖fd8? Black effectively pins his d7-rook, his leading heavy piece on the opposed d-file, to the file. The Black d7-rook is pinned to the d-file in the sense that it blocks White's opposing d1-rook from taking the rook behind it on d8 <if the White d6-knight were to suddenly move away>.

  Richard Taylor: Tarrasch is worth studying. Over a couple of years I played over about 180 of his games with his and Reinfeld's analysis. Some great endings, middlegames and beautiful combinations. He was very very good when young and should have challenged Alekhine then but he himself thought Alekhine was too weak (at the time) and indeed he was then. But it would have been an interesting match.
Jan-01-19  Notgudinov: I think Tarrasch missed his chance by not playing Steinitz in a match from 1892-1894, before Lasker challenged Steinitz. This was his chance to become World Champion.
