Siegbert Tarrasch vs Alexander Alekhine

Blumenfeld Gambit

In this game we see a clash of styles. Tarrasch who is playing the white pieces, was well known as a strict follower of classical chess principles. He achieved incredible results and was one of the best players in the world during his lifetime. However, in this game he was up against one of the greatest champions in chess history, Alexander Alekhine. Alekhine was the complete package. He could play positionally, tactically, creatively. He had no limits and in this game he places the daring Blumenfeld gambit. He plays an unorthodox opening against the most orthodox or players and it works like a charm. Tarrasch quickly loses his way in these uncharted waters and Alekhine builds up his advantage systematically before going for the finishing blow.
