From the 8th move onward in this game, Tarrasch maps out a plan that will decide the game. He pries open the g-file, and posts both of his rooks on it. Then he swings the queen over, which crushes the barriers. Finally von Scheve's king cannot hold on any longer and he must concede.

Tarrasch- "As Rosseau could not compose without his cat beside him, so I cannot play chess without my King's Bishop. In its absence the game to me is lifeless and void, and I can devise no plan of attack."
