  Calli: 15.Bxc6! is a wonderful play. He eschews the material gain of Bxa8 in favor of gaining control of d5 for his knight even though Nd5 is several moves away.
Jun-12-12  Anderssen99: 25...,Kd8. 26.Qxb8+,Qc8. 27.Qxa7,Qc6. 28.c4!!,Qxc4 (If 28...,Ng4 to prevent Rf6 there comes 29.Rf7 forcing mate). 29.Qb8+,Qc8 (29...,Kd7. 30.Nb6+). 30.Qb6+!! (The move foreseen long ago by Chigorin when he embarked on this "journey"),Kd7. 31.Qd6 mate. An impressive game - to say the least.
