Mar-14-10  Rama: 17. ... Nh4? Big mistake. In the final position black wins a piece, nice.

Another possible case of Historical Wrong Rook, affecting nothing more important than the historical record.

"American Chess Bulletin", June 1904, p.6 gives <22...Red8> and <24...Rbd8>. Perhaps this move order makes a little more sense than the one given here, since it repositions the lest active rook first, but I'd feel better about sending in a correction if more sources were available.

May-28-17  Sally Simpson: I like you move P.B.

Here, as in the game. (White to play)

24.Rd1 is a playable move, the Knight of f5 starts to look like it was part of an exchange sac idea with a pair of Rooks coming off the board.

But if it was 22....Red8 23.Bxc5 Rd7

Then 24.Rd1 meets 24...Rxb2!

I've solved the mystery. The real moves were (or should have been anyway) 22...Bd6 23. Rd1 Bf8 24. Qd2 Rb4.
