  Chessical: Duras spots a second rank weakness on e2. If 26.Bxe2 Rxe2 27.Qf1 Qa3.
Feb-11-13  shallowred: After 9...Kh8, Lasker says (in his Tournament Book; which is awesome) that if 10. Bxh7 then Black will play g6.

But what happens after 11. BxP PxB 12. QxP; winning 3 kingside pawns for a Bishop?

Black can play 12... RxN and 13. KxR Qe7+ 14. Be3 Bf4 15. g3 BxB 16. PxB and Black has 3 different fighting pieces (N, B, R) versus the two rooks, but White has a passed h-pawn.
