Siegbert Tarrasch wasn't exactly known for his attacking games - in those days Rudolf Spielmann was the Last of the Mohicans trying to hold up romantic chess. It's also not an every day story that Black wins with a beautiful attack using Tarrasch's Defence, but that's what happened in round 6 of the SPICE Cup.

The second SPICE Cup is taking place 19-28 September at the Texas Tech University located in Lubbock, Texas. In the sixth round yesterday this great game was played:
