Na4 Bf5 {A well known form of the Tarrasch Defence in which, by menas of a pawn sacrifice, Black has pushed his isolated pawn to the fourth rank. According to Tarrasch, Black's space advantage is ample compensation for the lostpawn} 11. Nh4 (11. Bf4) (11. a3 Ne4 12. b4 Nc3 13. Nxc3 dxc3 14. Qxd8 Raxd8 15. Bg5 Bxg5 16. Nxg5 Nd4 $132) 11...
