May-01-09  just a kid: What about 10...Bf6?

I. 11.Re1+ Kf8 12.Qc5+ Be7 and the pawn will fall.
II. 11.Qe4+(or 11.Qe3+) Qe7 12.Qxe7+ Bxe7 and Black has the two Bishops.

  sneaky pete: Then black has not won a pawn, his king is uncomfortable and Rh8 will be inactive for a long time. That's why Zukertort castled. Of course after 10... Bf6? 11.Re1+ Kf8 12.Qc5+ .. isn't necessary, white might play 12.cxb7 .. immediately.
May-02-09  just a kid: I feel though that Black's two Bishops might give him enough compensation

  zanzibar: This game is wrong - Zukertort had White, along with the other two players.

It was a postal game between Breslau and Berlin, where the Berlin team members were unspecified/unknown.
