  wwall: <British Chess Magazine>, March 1903, p. 129, says this about Black's last move. "24. Resigns. Completely demoralised, but the game is really hopelessly lost. If, for instance, R-R2 to defend the B, the NxQBP makes Black two Pawns ahead, and leaves White in a hopeless position." But it seems that the bishop instead of the knight taking at c3 is better. 23...Qxb2 24.Rh2 Bxc3 25.Bxc3 Qxc3 26.Qxc3 Nxc3 27.Bc2 Rd2 28.Bb3 Rxh2 29.Kxh2 Rd2+ 30. Kg3 Nxa2 wins another pawn.
