  Knight13: White should resigned after 20. Bxf7!
Because if 21... Qxf7 22. Rxd8 Rxd8 23. Qxd8+. As you know, 21... Rxd1 is still useless. In move 21, black should gave up the bishop and move 21... f6 instead, driving the queen away from the Qxd8. After 21... f6, black can decide to play 22... Rxd1 or not.

  tpstar: <Knight13> Your post is confusing. Compare to this revised version = "Black should have resigned after 20. Bxb7! because if 20 ... Qxb7 21. Rxd8 Rxd8 22. Qxd8#." But then you note the correct continuation for Black was the Zwischenzug = In-Between Move 20 ... f6! which holds everything. And there's the crucial point of this combination: 20 ... Rxd1?! 21. Rxd1 f6 loses to another Zwischenzug 22. Bd5+ followed by a Queen move and White won a piece, so best was 20 ... f6! because if 21. Rxd8 Rxd8, next the White Queen moves, then 22 ... Qxb7 is safe with an even game, or else 21. Bd5+ Rxd5 22. Qh5 Rdd8 holds (22 ... Red8?? 23. Rxd5 Rxd5 24. Qe8#). Therefore Black should NOT have resigned after 20. Bxb7 but needed to play 20 ... f6! instead. In the annotation box below the board, Blackburne indicates how Tarrasch blundered the game away in time pressure.

  Knight13: Black was better until 19...Ne5?? But black doesn't have many good choices here.
