Jul-14-04  percyblakeney: Harmonistís pretty finish is sadly not correct, since 28. Rfe2 is a terrible blunder by Schallopp, who instead should have played Rf3. Then follows for example 28. ... Rh1+ 29. Kf2 Rxe1 30. Qxe4 Rxe4 31. Kxg3 and white wins.

  Honza Cervenka: Black's sac was incorrect and white could have won quite easily after 26.Qb3. 26.Re1 was a mistake though not fatal yet. White apparently overlooked 26...Ng3! with threatening mate on h1. But white was still up then, and if he would have played 28.Rf3 as <percyblakeney> pointed out long time ago, after 28.... Rh1+ 29.Kf2 Rxe1 30.Qxe4 Rxe4 31.Kxg3, which seems to be more or less mutually forced continuation, white has an extra Knight for two Pawns and should be able to win the game after all. But Schallopp did not want to return any material and he overlooked the mate in two.
