    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 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

    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.[1] 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. Tongue Out
