Sep-10-04  suenteus po 147: The ending Mieses resigned from was: 23.Kxe4 Qe2+ 24.Kd5(forced) Be6! (which would be even more demoralizing if it weren't already mate).
Jan-04-08  DarthStapler: Qe6 is also mate
Jul-02-09  Knight13: <I prefer Bc5 or Nc6.> Is this a personal note? Or is this for the purpose of publication? Because if it was for publication one wouldn't put something as personal and trivial as this.

<16. Rf1> What is this? Castling brings the king to safety AND the rook to f1. A strong player like him wouldn't see this?

  FSR: Pretty horrible annotations IMO. Bardeleben analyzes 18...Re8 19.Qh5 Ng6 20.0-0-0 "and White would have a strong attack." Surely eating the bishop with 20.Qxc5 would be better, although Black gets counterplay with 20...f5 threatening 21...Qh4+. Bardeleben was a strange guy - he was famous for storming off during Steinitz vs Von Bardeleben, 1895 in this tournament, and killed himself by jumping out a window in 1924.

I agree with Knight13 that 16.0-0 was obviously better than 16.Rf1? A strange game. This is the sort of game Kasparov had in bind when he opined that the great players of old played horribly.

Dec-05-22  tbontb: White Mieses launches an all-out attack but Black Pillsbury defends well by offering an exchange "sacrifice" to turn the tables and seize the initiative. After 19.g4 White is lost so the last chance is 19.g3, though still with advantage to Black.
