I wonder what White would play if 23 ... b5 instead, exploiting the pin on the Nc4: 24. e6 Bxc4 25. e7+ Bxe7 26. fxe7+ Qxe7! and Black holds, or 24. fg+ Kg8 hiding behind the Pg7. Nice Kingside attack to win the Queen (32. Rf7!) and clever tactics to drive it home (37. c4! Bxc4?? 38. Qh4+). White gets back in time to cover the weak back rank (41. Qxe1), up Q for R.

  fredthebear: Mikhail Ivanovich Chigorin (Tchigorin) would have been pleased by this game.

White promptly exchanges both bishops for the Black knights (removing the right to castle). Then the two White knights make significant contributions in the king hunt. 33.Nxf7+ causes the Black queen to bow out to the White queen, who then continues to terrorize the Black army into submission. The Black bishop pair is made to look foolish in the end.

What chess drama!
