  Sneaky: 20.Rxf6! very nice shot.
Apr-14-09  True2theGame: I think 20.Rxf6! is quite sharp here... It's like something you would see from the black side of an open Sicilian. I could not see the forced mating net in 6 that Zuk saw, but I still would have played move 20 the same.

  Pawn and Two: <stoy> See the site www.chessarch.com for game annotations and match information. This site states, <On the 29th move M. Rosenthal exhausted his second hour, and according to the strict regulations, he would have make his next move instantaneously.>

Zukertort then offered an exception to the time limit rule by offering a few minutes grace, but Rosenthal, in view of the unavoidable mate, preferred to resign at once.

Zukertort won this match by a score of +7-1=11.
