Mar-27-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Another poor display by Romberg - anyhow, i really enjoyed last 3 moves by Tarrasch.
Jun-27-07  ChessDude33: 4...c4 is just ugly
Jan-10-09  WhiteRook48: 26. e6! then KNIGHT SAC yay and then mate in two. Poor Romberg.

  Domdaniel: 26.e6 wins, but 26.Nxf7 is also good. If ...Qxf7 then 27.Qxb8+ mates. Or 26...Nc6 27.Nd8+ etc.

The line played is admittedly prettier.

Nov-08-18  fkohn: Actually 27. Ne8 is not the fastest mate after Black's best defence of 27. ... Qf4! The fastest path to checkmate is 27. Ne4!
Nov-09-18  Granny O Doul: Yes, Black did have a chance to hold out one move longer had he found the brilliant series of "only" moves 27...Qf4! 28. Nf6+ Qxf6! 29. Qxb8+ Re8!! 30. Qxe8+ Qf8!!!. 31. Qxf8#. Perhaps he was 𝑒𝑟𝑠ℎ𝑜𝑝𝑓𝑡 after his long 𝑣𝑒𝑟𝑡𝑒𝑖𝑑𝑖𝑔𝑢𝑛𝑔.
