great games sir thank you
Nice ..Lovely finish... thgh i like to attack ..i am always afraid to move my f and g pawn ..but now interested ..;) especially when most pieces of opponent s on queen side . He is really awesome :)
Too too good.
Now that I've seen the 3 videos on my namesake GM Nimzovitch of course I had to watch the videos on his arch chess-enemy Dr Tarrasch, and this first one is just as entertaining and instructive as the Nimzovich videos, so I'm looking forward to Part 2!
Awesome very good
This was very well said! The teacher of the teachers, you could not be more exact We have all learned from Tarrasch, and we would keep on learning in the future.
As for your concrete question, the answer is yes! this move should also win and is a decent alternative to the attack conducted in the game.
Keep on investigating, you will find many more beautiful ideas
Bojkov, thank you very much for your kind interest. I watch your every lesson and learn a lot from them. The minute is 18:25. If the sacrifice will be accepted, the position reached after white's moves ....Rh3-Qh2 and Ng5 compansates the sacrifice? I am looking for new videos about Dr. Tarrash; every chess player should know well the teacher of the teachers.
@ sener 26- at which moment is this happening? Can you, please, tell me the minute of the video?
The others- Thank you for the positive feedback, more brilliant games by Tarrasch to come
A fun video which also featured some really good tactical instruction. Thank you !
The video gives a new feel for the positions and the dynamics of the game.
This was a brilliant lecture I really enjoyed looking at all the variations I'm constantly picking up ideas for my own game!
Thanks! This is a great video!!
n thnx for great opening...!!!
great video. thanks.
As a "French def. player." I will add this lesson to my ever growing knowledge of this variation. thank you.
After Bb5, could white play Bxg6 instead of f5?
