  Honza Cervenka: 39...fxe5 40.Rd8+ Kh7 41.Bg8+ Kh8 42.Bd5+ Kh7 43.Kxg2 is quite witty final.
Apr-28-10  InspiredByMorphy: 18. ...d4 would have produced a much different game.
May-01-14  SeanAzarin: If Schlechter had managed a draw, HE would have won the tournament by 1/2 point over Tarrasch instead of the other way 'round. So this was, in effect, the game that decided the tournament.
May-01-14  JimNorCal: Black's position is under pressure, to be sure, but isn't 30. ... Nxe4 simply a blunder which loses a piece?

Black is actually completely lost at this point, so 30... ♘xe4 is hardly worse than other moves. After 23. d4 his position was very bad already, so he must have done something wrong around moves 18-22 (21... ♘h7 is obviously bad, but it's hard to come with a consistent plan at this point).
