You people should realize that getting onto the first page isn't such an achievement.
OT: This one was quite challenge ... well, it is morning after all.
This study appears in Raymon Edwards book Practic Chess.
But you must admit that THIS is an achievement... :)
This isn't really a puzzle, more like opening knowledge and preparation. It's the Tarrash trap in the Steinitz variation of the Ruy Lopez where black's last move was 7... 0-0?
YES and according to legend it took the good Doctor about 4 minutes to invent it vs Marco OTB in 1892
don't get it
took me too long, 15 minutes
Be more positive - it took you 4x as long as it did a world-class GM, but you did get it. Probably the only reason I "got it" was because I've seen it before
He didn't really invent it OTB though, cause he already published it a year earlier."Tarrasch published analysis of this trap in 1891, but 18 months later Georg Marco fell into it in Tarrasch versus MarcoDresden 1892. Tarrasch spent just 5 minutes of thinking for the whole game." So no one really knows how long it really took him to analyze the whole line.
"...Long Calculation..." ??? .... no, it's totally a game
...should have put it in the game of the day.
That is one of the most amazing opening traps!
Basically a whole game...
Nice and long, great stuff
lenghty...but gud one....
Too obscure for me!
first for first
