Fahrni Filler

From A Master Knows When to Break 'The Rules', Soltis: 'Tarrasch had ridiculed f4-f5 when it occurred in a similar position (e.g. Fahrni-Janowsky, Nuremberg 1906)'. This was another Exchange Lopez.

Nuremberg (N├╝rnberg) 1906
Janowski, David

Fahrni, Hans

[FEN "r1k1r3/2pb2pp/p1pb1pn1/1p6/4PP2/2N3BP/PPP3PK/2NR1R2 w - - 0 18"]

Not a representative game. The move 25...b4? loses.

P.S. Why 'in a similar position e.g. ...'? Either it was the game, or it wasn't. Better 'i.e.'?

P.P.S. Game not found on Chessgames.com; 'Player search: FAHRNI; 13 games', all from 1906: Nuremberg (DSB15 Kongress) and Ostend.

P.P.P.S. Gaige: Hans Fahrni (SWZ, 1874-1939), Elo 2480 [more++]
