Aug-18-06  Timothy Glenn Forney: Nh6 acts as a "Magnet attack" drawing King out due to the mate threat.I love this tactic. This is a very instructive game on the Kingside Attack,sometimes called a mating net.Great Game.
May-28-08  Kareem: Also good

  fredthebear: If Black tried 23...Qe8 to defend the f7-square from the initial mate threat, then 24.exf6 to open the e-file, create and pile on the pinned dark-squared bishop would turn out nicely for White.

Therefore, the Black monarch takes a stroll.

Mar-30-18  RookFile: I think the problem with black's opening is you either play ...f6 to make a strong point center OR you play exd4 to give it up, but you don't play both.
May-26-18  mifralu: Blindfold simul in Vienna, 14 September 1902. Pillsbury scored +12 -0 =4.
May-26-18  mifralu: According to (Neue) Wiener Schachzeitung, October 1902, p.209 the game ends with <27. Re3 resigns >

  jith1207: If 27.Re3, would not black play Be2 to give some resistance? This text line looks better.

  jith1207: Nope, bishop to h5 still can't stop Bg5 mate.

Longest mate after that seems to be 27...Qc8 28.Rd5 Rg8 29.Re7 Rc7 30.Qxh7#
