Surprisingly I've never read this book. This game seems rather childish to me, even for the time it was played. I do not doubt it's instructional value!

I'm really just motivated to write this reply, due to the Tarrasch reference. It's seems incredible that such a strong player could make such a simple tactical mistake in analysis, but please note-

It is very likely Tarrasch analysed and wrote the notes to the game without bothering to use a board, ie blindfold. I'm not saying all old books were largly done in such a manner, but you can be pretty sure large portions of books were done thus. Why? Simple. People are often lazy and maybe a little too confident at times in thier own abilities " Quote Petrosian ". I guess the most famous instance of such a slip of the pen, is Alekhine falling for the Noah's Ark trap!

I've often get a sense of arrogance from Tarrasch's writings as talented as he may have been.
