My name is Siegbert Tarrasch, and I approve of this video!
Very well done video.
thanks GM Dejan look forward to the next one
Nice look at the Tarrasch defence!
Nice video Thanks for putting out this series !!!
Tarrasch was quite strong, I should probably look at his games. Could learn better the strength of the central pawns.
Yes, Ivyhnanek, Qxf7#
I fot that it was part 2 of last time
At 10:35, the reason why knight cant capture is a simple Qxf2# :)
In the game with Marshall: Why doesn't Marshall have Bf4 after ...h6 instead of the text move Bc1? The idea being that instead of taking two tempi to pin the knight to the king, it applies immediate pressure to the knight and down the d file (aiming at the exchange on d8 and then Bb8 to target the weak a7 pawn... The best I saw was Ne4 for black but this might have been a try...
by GM Dejan Bojkov
Today GM Dejan Bojkov highlights Dr Tarrasch's contributions to chess theory, in particular, his own defense against 1.d4. Tarrasch had very original ideas about pawn play and positional principals, in comparison to his contemporaries. His theories on the strength of an Isolated Queen Pawn were progressive to say the least, and his game with the legendary Marshall is a great example this.
