Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-09-04  Calli: The guys play one of the oldest and longest Ruy variations. See B Fleissig vs Mackenzie, 1882 for the original. Reaching the same position after 20.Be3. Euwe's 21...Bg4! is nice. Bogo miscalculates the reply.
Dec-06-12  Naniwazu: After 17...Ng3 White obviously can't play 18. Bxg4 because of 18...Nxf1. But what happens if White captures the knight on g3? After 18. hxg3 fxg3 19. Be3 Qh4 20. Re1 c6! 21. Re2 Qh2+ 22. Kf1 Qh1+ 23. Bg1 Rxf3+! 24. gxh3 Bh3+ 25. Ke1 Qxg1+ 26. Kd2 Qxd4+ 27. Kc2 Bf5+ 28. Qc5+ Bc2 the position is about equal.

Reuben Fine annotating this game in Chess Review considers 22. Rc2 correct and gives the following variation as winning for Black: 22. Kf1 Bxf3? 23. gxf3 Qh2 24. Re2? Rxf3+ 25. Ke1 Rxe3! which is true, but White has a much better move than 24. Re2 namely 24. Rc2 when Black has nothing better than 24...Qh3+ 25. Ke2 Rac8 26. Rg1 g2 27. Kd3 and White wins. Even after the correct move 22...Rxf3+! 23. gxf3 Qh2 24. Re2 Qh1+ 25. Bg1 Rf8! 26. Ke1 Qxg1+ 27. Kd2 Qxd4+ 28. Ke1 Qxd1+ 29. Bxd1 Bxf3 30. Re3 g2 31. Kf2 Bxd1+ 32. Kxg2 White should hold. It seems that 22. Rc2 is just a mistake that loses.
