  Honza Cervenka: Bogo probably saw that 27.Bxb5 would have won a Pawn (27...axb5? 28.Rxa8 Qxa8 29.Qxf6) but opted for continuation of Ks attack via 27.f3 and 28.Kf2 with clearing way for Rooks and looming threat 29.Nxf4 which could have followed after 28...b4. But it seems to be that after 28...Rh8 black still can defend his position. 29.Nh4! is nice shot but instead of 30.Re7 which is not bad by itself he could have won instantly playing simply 30.Qxc8 and 31.Nf5+.
May-19-08  vonKrolock: The Spanish edition of Reti's "New Ideas" gives <29.♘h4 - black resigns> and a brief comment on the possibilities 29...♕xf5, 29...♕ moves and 29... gxh4. Strangely enough, the 'first choice' 29...♖h8!? is not mentioned

  Varmint: Seems Black resigned too soon (at least according to the engine).

  Varmint: My English edition of Modern Ideas gives 11.... P-R4 (a5) (also in the diagram) which apparently is erroneous.
