  Chessical: This game was part of critical theory in the early twentieth century.

Bardeleben comes close to equalising in the Deferred Steinitz, and with the tricky <25...Ne4> 26.Nxe4 dxe4 27.Qe3 (27.Qxe4? Bxb3 is the trick) 27...Rxd2 28.Rxd2 f5 he could have at least drawn.

Bernstein's <27.Nxf6+!!> contains the hidden poison of the threat to h7 after 28.Qf5, and it is fatal for Bardeleben.

<27...Qxf6> leaves him lost, and two pawns down: 28.Qxf6 Rxd2 29.Qxf8+ Kxf8 30.Rxd2
