  Honza Cervenka: Crazy game. 29...Nxe3 looks like a mistake. 29...Rxd6 30.cxd6 Nxe3 31.Rxe3 Bxf5 32.Kf4 g6 33.c5 is not nice for black but at least after 33...Kg7 I see no quick win for white. In final position 31...Nxd6 32.cxd6 Bxe6 33.Rb7 is probably hopeless, maybe 31...e3 was worth to try as to find 32.Rxe3! g5+!? 33.Ke5! (But not 33.Kxg5? Nxe3 34.e7 Kg7 35.Rd8 Nxg2 (diagram) with threatening f7-f6 mate which forces 36.e8=N+ Kf8 37.Rxc8 Bxc8 ) 33...f6+ 34.Kxf6 Rf8+ 35.Kxg5 Nxe3 36.e7 Re8 37.Kf6 Bc8 38.Nxc6 Ng4+ 39.Kg6 with won endgame despite of black's extra piece is not so easy to find.

  keypusher: <Honza Cervenka> Thanks for this amazing note. Here is a diagram of the position after your 35....Nxg2 with the beautiful threat of ...f6#:

In the tournament book Tarrasch writes after 31. Kf4 only the following: <Here the game was adjourned for the lunch break and given up by Black later without further moves. After 31....Nxd6 32. cxd6 Bxe6 the game has not yet run its course. > There was a lot more to say!
