Paulsen – Tarrasch , Hamburg Chess Congress 1885

I played through another game in Tarrasch’s 300 Games tonight. Paulsen played a gambit, but then seemed to give Tarrasch the initiative. I would love to know what the thought was behind playing 32.Nd6. I would have preferred 25.B:f8 followed up with 26.Qd3 since that Knight is a valuable defender for black’s king position.
