  Calli: The ending might be 30.Ke2 Rxe3+! 31.fxe3 Qg2# A very modern looking attack by Herr Weiss. I can't recall any earlier game that features the sac of the b7 pawn gaining time for the rook lift and 21...Rxg3+! A game that could have been be played yesterday.
Feb-09-06  Arpit Deliwala: On 30.Kg1 ,30.Rg6 Finishes it off!

Feb-08-10  backrank: You surely mean 30. Kg1 Bd6.

The finish has been played very lovely by Black, but White has lost too many tempi here (b3, Bd3-e2-f1) and finally, he opened Black the f-file voluntarily by Nxe4.

Dec-06-14  Knight13: <backrank> You forgot 12. Qxb7-b3-c2. :)

White still had chance to save his game with 15. Ne5, but 15. b3? killed all(?) counter-play and 16. Be2? was the last straw.

  catlover: The pun sounds like a line from the Three Stooges. Nice attack by Weiss.
