  TheAlchemist: I'm not sure, but I think if black takes the Queen 19...Nxc2, then 20.Nxf6 Kh8 21.Rxa8 Qh6 22.Rxf8 Qxf8 23.Bxc2 and White should be winning. Another one for our good friend <Ron>

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: I first played through this game when I was about ten. It was in a collection of games my Father had clipped out of newspapers in Argentina and New York when he was in his teens and twenties. Thank you for teaching me chess, Dad.

That definitely works. SF's top line goes 21.Rxf8+ Rxf8 22.Nxh5 Bxh5 23.Bxc2 and White is a piece up.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: 11..gxf6 is one of those stereotypically ugly mores that would have given Reinfeld (and his acolytes who post here) an apoplexy. I wonder what black was thinking when he played it.
