I like your comment, Nimzoroy. Indeed not everyone had teh chance to become a world champion, one also needs not only to be excellent in what they are doing, but to be in a good time to do so. On the other hand we also admire those who produced those beautiful games, and gave something to the chess world!
(Tarrasch is) Over rated because he's still one of the most famous 'names' in chess history without being World Champion...Vease
So I guess Nimzovitch, Schlecter, Keres, Korchnoi, Bronstein and Rubinstein (to name but a few super-GMs who never became World CH) are also "over-rated?"
Great analysis, Tarrasch is strangely under rated and over rated at the same time - under rated because people don't know how many strong tournaments he won and just remember he got crushed by Lasker in 1908 WC. Over rated because he's still one of the most famous 'names' in chess history without being World Champion...
Thank you We know Tarrasch as a dry and straightforward man, but he was much more than that as you can see for yourselves!
awesome video. love the analysis!
Very enjoyable game and lecture I liked all the different variations and ideas it makes it so much more complete, good work!
Very good video!
A nice follow-up to part 1. The positions are very different then what I normally see. Thanks.
great...... thank u
Bojkov, thank you very much for the analyse of this very interesting game. It shows very well the great talent of Tarrash. He violates some rules of the chess and while trying to avoid white castling his king is more mobile travelling all around the board! I realize that I should play how Tarrash recommended us to play and not to play as he did!
Great video. thanks.

What a game! Thanks for giving us a differentiated picture of Tarrasch
by GM Dejan Bojkov
Dr Tarrasch's opening choice in today's video lecture might come as a bit of a surprise, but there is no arguing with his tactical execution and "feel for the initiative" against white's uncastled King. GM Dejan Bojkov reviews this exciting game for us, highlighting the many imbalances that occurred in the sharp middlegame that followed.
