  GrahamClayton: Brilliant attacking game by Rosenthal as part of a 29 board simultaneous exhibition in Paris in January 1876. Rosenthal finished the exhibition with a score of +25, -2, =2

The Sydney Morning Herald dated 26 April 1876 stated that the exhibition started at 9.20 pm on a Friday night, and continued through to approximately midnight. Rosenthal had stated that he would not spend more than one minute on any of his moves, and only took approximately 30 seconds for each of his moves across the 29 boards.

  Calli: The combo isn't quite right. Rosenthal plays 22.f3 so that if 22...Qxf7? 23. fxg4+. However 22...Bxf3!! wins because if 23.Rxf3 then 23...Qxd4+:

White will be mated.
