Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-17-14  Karpova: C. Rosenkranz describes the game in the 'St. Petersburger Zeitung' as follows: Dr. Bernstein lost two ♙s and then sacrificed two ♖s, in order to announce mate in 2. But then he saw, to his surprise, that his ♕ would have to hop over a ♙ to get where he wanted her to be and resigned.

Source: 'Wiener Schachzeitung', April 1909, p. 109

I guess that Dr. Bernstein had thought that his ♕ was on e8, so that the game would end with checkmate following 35...Qc6+.
