  crafty: 30. ♕e8+ ♖xe8 31. ♖xe8+ ♗xe8 32. c7+ ♖xf3 33. c8=♕#   (eval Mat03; depth 13 ply; 10M nodes)
Jul-19-03  John Doe: Or a less artistic mate in 4:

1. Qe8+ Rxe8 2. Rxe8+ Bxe8 3. c7+ Rxf3 4. c8Q#

  Sneaky: The crafty / John Doe line is better than what was actually played, because here it's not a forced mate. (Black might have played 31...Kb7.)
Jul-19-03  tdanford: Isn't there still a forced mate after what was played? 32. ... Kb7 33. c8=Q+ Kb6 34. Qc5+ and no matter whether the King moves to a6 or b7, he's eventually mated along the a-file (a3) or on a8 or b8?
Jul-19-03  John Doe: The other line is a forced mate in 10:

1. c7+ Rxf3 2. Qe8+ Rxe8 3. Rxe8+ Kb7 4. c8Q+ Kb6 5. Qc5+ Ka6 6. Qc6+ Ka5 7. Re5+ Bd5 8. Rxd5+ Kb4 9. Rb5+ Ka4 10. Qa6# 1-0

  Honza Cervenka: What about 29...Kc8?

  sfm: <Honza Cervenka: What about 29...Kc8?> 30.Qe2 looks strong.
Feb-27-07  Andreiko: 21.Rfd1 is a bad move, what you think about 21.Rfe1?
Feb-27-07  Andreiko: "Honza Cervenka: What about 29...Kc8?"
I think that black can resist better...the variation is to analyze. A.
Mar-04-07  schnarre: No end to the sacs by White! I love it!
Premium Chessgames Member
  beatgiant: I don't think the piece sac was sound. For example, Black can play 26...Rxf3! 27. gxh3 Rxe3 28. Rxe3 dxc4, reaching an endgame with a large material advantage.

  beatgiant: <sfm: <Honza Cervenka: What about 29...Kc8?> 30.Qe2 looks strong.>

But 29...Kc8 30. Qe2 <Bc4!> (can't be taken because of the attack on g2) and then 31. Qb2 Qh7 32. Rb1 Qc7, and White's attack appears to fizzle out.

Dec-18-08  thebribri8: Amazing!
Premium Chessgames Member
  sfm: <But 29...Kc8 30. Qe2 Bc4!> I can't find anything for White! Does that mean that 29.-,Kc8 would have won?
Dec-30-09  Karpova: Mieses considers this game to be his most exciting game.

Jacques Mieses: <it holds as much interest and excitement as I would ever wish to experience>

From Mieses' article ‘My Most Exciting Game’, pages 280-281 of 'CHESS', 14 April 1939.
