  GrahamClayton: I suppose after his 74th consecutive loss to Greco, NN gave up the game!
Nov-12-09  Dubirka: After the move 14.Rxh5 black could have played Qf6, threatning checkmate and garding his Rock on h8. Obviously white cant take his rock because then black would make mate and if he would move his queen to lets say e2 then he could just push his pawn threatning mate with a promotion. I havent put this position on my chess-software so i dont know the best moves to protect against the mate.
Sep-11-17  RKnight: <Dubrika> is right that 14...Qf6 saves the day for NN. Greco could not play 15 Qe2 as suggested or 15... Qf2+ 16.Qxf2 gf2+, 17. kxf2 Rxh5 and NN is up a R. Instead, Greco would need to play 15 Be3 which leads to rough equality.
Dec-08-17  schnarre: ...Something other than 7...f6 would be preferable. 7...Nc6 perhaps?
