  Calli: 14...Ne7? is ridiculous (There is nothing wrong with 14...Qxe5 that I see). Did the Soviets conspire already in 1925 for a Bogo win? :-O .

It looks like White missed a good move with <13.a3!>. Now Black may have nothing better than 13...Nd5, losing a pawn, since either 13...Nc2 14.Bd3! or 13...Na6 14.Bxa6 bxa6 15.Be3! lose a piece.

Another alternative is us 13,,,Qa5mbyt after 14.axb4 Qxa1 15.Nd2 Black will have to give up a piece to extricate his queen.

However, this may all be a score error. "American Chess Bulletin", December 1925, p. 175-176, gives <12...Ncb4>:

Now 13.a3 is answered by 13...Nxc3, and Black is OK.

I've learned not to accept ACB uncritically, but this seems worth looing into.
