Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-21-06  percyblakeney: Cologne 1898 was the amazingly talented Charousek's last big tournament, played when he wasn't yet 25 years old. He missed out on first spot after looking close to winning and later making the maybe worst blunder of his career, giving away a piece with 24. fxg6.
Nov-25-18  Telemus: According to Bachmann (citied by Fiala in the tb) the game ended after 24.. ♖xf3. Can anybody provide a source for the moves 25-32?
Nov-25-18  Nosnibor: <Telemus> Charousek resigning at move 25 agrees with the Sergeant collection wherein he states that 24 Rh1 would have proved more difficult for black to meet.
Nov-25-18  Telemus: Thanks, <Nosnibor>! Do you think Sergeant wrote his book without knowing Bachmann's?

I have seen a newspaper report mentioning the blunder and stating that the position was completely lost then, but the resignation is not explicitely mentioned.

What could be the primary source for the game?
