  woldsmandriffield: >Straclonoor< 62..Nbd7 is the only winning move. Likewise 63 Kc7 was the only drawing move.

The last chance for Black to win was 68..Kb5 (but in a ridiculous 108 moves!) Mieses found the excellent 69 a4!

It is completely arcane but 74 Kc3 was also a technical loss after 74..Nd5+

This game pre-dates Troitzky's famous analysis of the two Knight endgame.

Did the 50-move rule apply to the contest?! In C19th tournaments, the 50-move 'count' commenced when one of the players announced the fact. In matches, the situation is less clear and how long this endgame might have continued could have depended on the match conditions agreed to by Mieses and Janowski.

In Chess as in life, be careful what you agree to...
