  whiteshark: A good/strong game from W.Cohn.

<17...Kg7> was a mistake. Maybe Black missed in his calculation that <18.Qh4 h5> will refused by <19.Ne6+!!> when ♕e7 is unprotected.

So instant 17...Qe5 looks like the best move.

After the queen moves, White has Nh7+ forking king and rook. E.g. 26....Qf5 27. Nh7+ Ke7 28. Nxf8 Rxf8 29. Re1+ Kd7 30. Qxf8.

13....Bf5 was a mistake, refuted by 14. Qf3. If 14....Bxe4 then 15. Qxf7+ Kd7 16. Qe6+ Ke8 17. Bb5+ c6 18. Nxe4, threatening Nxd6+ and Qf7#.

  perfidious: <keypusher....13....Bf5 was a mistake, refuted by 14. Qf3. If 14....Bxe4 then 15. Qxf7+ Kd7 16. Qe6+ Ke8 17. Bb5+ c6 18. Nxe4, threatening Nxd6+ and Qf7#.>

This variation looks completely winning at first, as 18....cxb5 19.Nxd6+ Qxd6 20.Qxd6 Rd8 21.Qe5 Rxd5 22.Qxg7 defoliates Black's kingside and will win on material if there is no mate, but 17.Qxe4, featured in T Emery vs Menchik, 1939, appears cleaner: Black is bound hand and foot and his hapless monarch awaits a date with the abattoir.

I am performing this analysis without a board, so who knows whether it is correct?
