Jun-13-04  Tigran Petrosian: 37.hxg6!! is a nice pawn-dash combination.
Jun-13-04  Catfriend: Forgacs was a bright attacker!
L Forgacs vs Tartakower, 1909
Jun-13-04  Tigran Petrosian: Indeed!
Sep-23-05  Hidden Skillz: damn that was a great follow up by forgacs from the move 36.Rge3
Jul-23-08  arsen387: what a brillincy! This attack is really awesome. 37.hxg6! what a move. If 38..exd2? then 39.h8=♕+ Ke7 40.Qf6# If 39..Qxd2? then Bf6+ followed by h8=♕#. Looking at this game and also Forgacs's game with Tartakower, you really begin to respect this guy.
Nov-26-08  cghlime: 41. g6 might have ended the game much sooner, because it looks like Black will have to give up both Rooks to stop the pawns.
Aug-08-16  Straclonoor: Probably I'll upset anybody in this treat, but 37.hxg6 doesn't give clear win, only slightly advantage.
