Another Tarrasch Victory at Nurnberg Congress

Continuing to work through Tarrasch's 300 Games. Tonight was Game 47 which is a French Defense against Barthmann.

I like 18.Nxc8+. It is something I probably wouldn't have thought about before, but Tarrasch has 3 choices, 1) he can concede the d6 outpost, 2) He can allow the N to be captured on d6, messing up his pawns, 3) He can trade off the N for the attacker, keeping his pawn structure intact.
