  Ron: The good doctor Tarrasch is correct in his notes to this game, 32. Re7+ would lead to mate: 32. ... Rc7 33. Rxc7+ Ka8 34. Ra7++

An excellent game by Mieses in one of the greatest tournaments of all time.

Oct-17-07  qskakaley: Could the game also end as Ron noted but with 33.Qxc7+ Ka8 34.Qa7#?
Jun-18-08  Lutwidge: Mieses started Hastings with two crushing wins and then a draw as Black vs Tarrasch. Not bad. He then blundered in round four vs Janowski, throwing away a brilliancy, lost, and presumably it was downhill from there, as he finished tied for second to last place with Tinsley.
