  Honza Cervenka: This game is tactically so complex that both opponents who were quite capable in tactics were sometimes utterly lost in it. One of several missed opportunities was 16.Nxf7! Kxf7 17.Be5 Kg6 18.Rxf5! Bxc3+ 19.bxc3 Kxf5 20.0-0-0

27.Kd2 seems to be better than text move. 28.Nf7+ was a mistake and Nxg6 immediately or after inserted Bg5+ was necessary. At this point both players missed that after 28...Kd7! black wins two pieces for Rook at least (29.Ne5+ Rxe5 30.dxe5 Nxh6). In the end white blundered in drawish ending by careless 64.Rf2? allowing black to create dangerous Passer which decided the game in his favour. Final ending K+Q vs K+R+P was still quite tricky but Petrov was able to find correct plan for win.

Mar-27-16  zanzibar: Game is give as being played in Paris 1863 in Russian literature (which makes sense, given Lindehn isn't Russian).
