  Calli: Actually 30.Kg2! wins (Tim Krabbé).

For instance, 30.Kg2! Rf5+ 31.Kg3 Rxc5 32.Rgc1 and White remains with a big material advantage

Sep-05-06  Boomie: This is an astonishingly modern treatment of the opening for 1859.
Sep-05-06  Confuse: cute ending : )

  patzer2: Fritz 8 finds a fantastic win White missed, based on Black's weakened back rank, with 27. Rad1!! (diagram below).

Play after 27. Rad1!! (diagram above) might continue 27...Qf8 28. Rgf1! Rxe3 29. fxe3 Qe8 30. Ne6 (the threat 31. Rd8 decides).

  patzer2: Of course based on <Honza Cervenka>'s analysis, there was nothing wrong with White's 27th move as he had but missed winning opportunities on his 29th and 30th turns.

  patzer2: In addition to Honza's 30. fxe3!, White can also defend and win easily with 30. Kg2!

  patzer2: Still, even with all the blunders by White, Black's 33...Re3! is a neat discovered attack combination which uses the clearance, pinning and weak back rank tactical motifs to decisive advantage.

  kevin86: A strange finish! Black has a long series of moves that can be classified by !?. With best play,white can stave off the attack and win with his material advantage. Still,the attack-though technically flawed,is an artistic masterpiece.

White had at least three chances to pull it out:27 ♖ad1;29♖g7+; and 30 ♔g2

Sep-05-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Boy, White sure missed a lot of wins here. It gives you second thoughts of how brilliant Black's victory truly is.

  outplayer: Unfortunately games like that are very frequent. I let a beautiful win go trhough my nervous hands today which turned out to a sour lost.
Sep-05-06  agentniner: 24.Kh1??
May-07-07  ath: I wonder ... I just came across this score in Schachzeitung (score 1332, 1859 p 299), but here White is said to be the duo of the Duke of Braunschweig and Count Casabianca.

Unfortunately, nothing is said about where it was played -- but it would be nice to imagine that Kolisch had some difficulty in tearing himself away from an opera performance ...
