46...Bxb6? <46...g2 47.b7 Ba7 48.Rg6 Ng3> wins according to the 'Wiener Schachzeitung' but Mieses, who is assumed to have seen it, wanted to please the spectators.

So at the end there's a warning:

<Spiele nie für das Publikum. Kitzelt dich der Eitelkeitsteufel, bläht dich der Hochmutsdämon, so verscheuche die Wahngebilde, welche sie dir einflüstern durch einen Gegenwahn. Stelle dir vor, daß du ein komplizirtes Rechenexempel mittels einer 7stelligen Logarithmentafel berechnest. Diese Erwägung wird dein erhitztes Blut abkühlen, und deinem Gemüthe jene olympische Ruhe verschaffen, welche die Vorbedingung weiser Entschlüsse ist.>

From page 222 of the 1903 'Wiener Schachzeitung'
