Oct-08-04  ConLaMismaMano: After 24.Rxf6 weren't there drawing chances?
Premium Chessgames Member
  vonKrolock: <19.exf7+> instead of this, white had at his disposal the showy stroke 19.♗h6!, not a real sacrifice, as if 19...gxh5, then 20.♕e5 winning quickly, but white's attack would become more dangerous than after the actual sequence

<24.♖xf6!?> otherwise a drawish position soon would appear

<34...♘f6>?? a blunder - if the ♔night remained in 'd5' (34...♕c5 etc) it's not clear how white could improve his attack, and in that case, a black victory was at reach, with the plus in material and the distant majority

Jan-05-14  Naniwazu: <vonKrolock> Kaufeld & Kern give the line 34...Qb4 (to control e7) 35. Ng4! Kf7 36. Ree2 as the only viable defense for Black.
