  Pawn and Two: <ughaibu> 23...Bc8 is a good suggestion. Fritz indicates it is Black's best move, and indicates the position is about equal after 23...Bc8: (.02) (23 ply) 24.Rd5 Nf4 25.Bxf4 Qxf4 26.g3, or (.00) (23 ply) 24.Qg4 Bxf5 25.Qxf5 Re5 26.Qd7.

Steinitz obviously blundered by playing 23...Re5?. Perhaps Blackburne explained it best, when he remarked regarding 23...Re5?, <"Black failed to fathom the combination which begins here".>

  lame duck: 23...Bс8 is not good for black, because after 24. Ra7 Bxf5 25. Qxf5 Qe5 26. Rdd7 they don't have any adequate defence against Rxg7. Rybka suggests playing 23...Ne5 as better option: 24. Nd6 Nd3 25.Nxe8 Rxe8, and black has defendable position.
