Sep-10-04  suenteus po 147: The ending Mieses resigned from was: 23.Kxe4 Qe2+ 24.Kd5(forced) Be6! (which would be even more demoralizing if it weren't already mate).

  DarthStapler: Qe6 is also mate
Jul-02-09  Knight13: <I prefer Bc5 or Nc6.> Is this a personal note? Or is this for the purpose of publication? Because if it was for publication one wouldn't put something as personal and trivial as this.

<16. Rf1> What is this? Castling brings the king to safety AND the rook to f1. A strong player like him wouldn't see this?

  FSR: Pretty horrible annotations IMO. Bardeleben analyzes 18...Re8 19.Qh5 Ng6 20.0-0-0 "and White would have a strong attack." Surely eating the bishop with 20.Qxc5 would be better, although Black gets counterplay with 20...f5 threatening 21...Qh4+. Bardeleben was a strange guy - he was famous for storming off during Steinitz vs Von Bardeleben, 1895 in this tournament, and killed himself by jumping out a window in 1924.

I agree with Knight13 that 16.0-0 was obviously better than 16.Rf1? A strange game. This is the sort of game Kasparov had in bind when he opined that the great players of old played horribly.
