|Sep-17-02|| ||Honza Cervenka: White missed some nice opportunities to defend himself successfully.|
1) 29.Rxg7! Kxg7 29.Ne6+ Kg6(g8,h8) 30.Nxf8+ Rxf8+ 31.Qxa8 Rxa8 32.fxe3 +-
2) 30.fxe3 Rxe3+ (30...Rf5+ 31.e4 Rxc5 32.Rae1 +-) 31.Rg2 Re2 32.Rag1 Rxa2 33.h3 +-
3) 33.Nd4 Re3 34.Nf5 Bxg2+ 35.Kxg2 gxf5 36.Rxf2 Re5 with little advantage of white in rook's ending.
|Oct-26-04|| ||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 : )|
|Sep-05-06|| ||brankat: <Boomie> Enjoyed Your Bio as much as the above game:-) You may want to consider opening a forum.|
|Sep-05-06|| ||TheBB: That's one menacing bishop, despite being shoved into the corner like that.|
|Sep-05-06|| ||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).
|Sep-05-06|| ||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.|
|Sep-05-06|| ||patzer2: In addition to Honza's 30. fxe3!, White can also defend and win easily with 30. Kg2!|
|Sep-05-06|| ||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.|
|Sep-05-06|| ||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.|
|Sep-05-06|| ||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 ...
