|Mar-18-06|| ||Whitehat1963: Now here's a puzzle after 24. Kg2. I would never have played this sequence of moves in a hundred years!|
|Jun-09-13|| ||Tabanus: I added day, month and round number from Visir Sunnadagsbladir (Iceland) 7 Feb. 1937, p. 6.|
|Feb-18-15|| ||jjones5050: Why doesn't 25. f3 win or at least save for white?|
|Feb-21-15|| ||Oliveira: <jjones5050> Hmm, maybe there is a typo on this game's score. ChessBase gives 24.♔h2 instead.|
Against 24.♔g2 my best guess is that Eliskases would have actually played 24... ♖xd1 25.♕xd1 ♖e3!
|Feb-21-15|| ||zanzibar: <Oliveira> the engines give 24...Nf4+ as best if 24.Kg2 then after 25.Kg1 Qf3! 26.gxf4 Qg4+ 27.Kh1 Qxh4+|
And the defensive/offensive fork protects the d8-rook, allowing a clean pick-up of White's queen.
|Feb-21-15|| ||Oliveira: <zanzibar> Right on! The same happened to me when running StockFish to see that I wasn't missing anything obvious. However, try the move sequence I indicated and engines give an even larger advantage for Black! Depending on the CPU's capacity it may take longer for engines to determine the strongest continuation.|
|Feb-21-15|| ||zanzibar: <Oliveira> right you are. |
But that's a very difficult line to find with 25...Re3! It's brilliant, though, and might even qualify as a weekend puzzle:

Of course given that 25...Nf4+ is so good, you'd have to drop a hint that there's an even better, more insidious move afloat.
A couple of lines I looked at:
25.Qxd1 Re3 26.Qd8+
__ ( 26.Re1 Qf3+ 27.Kh2 Qxf2+ 28.Kh3 Qxg3# )
