Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-23-03  bishop: A bold sacrifice works out well for Chigorin. Maybe 11...Qd7 was better than ...Qxg5. 12...Nh6? overlooked 13.Bc8!
Sep-24-03  crafty: 13. ... a6 14. ♗xb7 ♖a7 15. ♗xc6+ ♘xc6 16. ♕xc6+   (eval 2.57; depth 13 ply; 500M nodes)
Oct-08-05  Nightwalk: Wonderful play by Chigorin. One of those games where one move could make the entire difference in a game.
Oct-25-16  Christoforus Polacco: Too early resign... Nobody rescued game by surrendering :)) Magnus Carlsen would have been trying to play longer. Maybe: 13.... Nd7 14.B:b7 Rb8 15.B:c6 ... (15.Q:c6? Qe3+ 16.Kh1 Ng4 with threat of ''smothered mate'')... Qh5 and black still fights. White can't move 'e' pawn.
Oct-25-16  sneaky pete: After 13... Nd7 14.Bxb7 Rb8 15.Bxc6 Qh5 16.Qd5 ..

black must choose between 16... Qg4 17.h3 .. and 16... Rd8 17.Qe6#

Black could have resigned after 13.Bc8 .. but he didn't. The actual game, also in this database, lasted 25 moves.
