  InspiredByMorphy: Would 13.Rd1 Nf6 14.Nxd4 Nxd4 15.Bxd4 have been better?

  Phony Benoni: I wonder if Bernstein finished "castling" just as a joke. He must have known it wasn't going to help.
Mar-13-19  Amarande: The threat was 25 ... Ne4+ discovering attack on the Queen; Spielmann (Art of Sacrifice in Chess) describes 25 Kg1 as an oversight, but also indicates White must lose major material regardless.

Bernstein could have held on a little longer with 25 Kg2, which at least would allow him to get Rook and Knight for the Queen, but even here his game is still hopeless, e.g. 25 Kg2 Ne4 26 Qxc8 Bxc8 27 fxe4 fxe4 28 Kg1 (not 28 Nxe4? Qd5!) e3 29 Ne4 (if 29 Nf3 Nxf3+ and the center pawns, connected, passed, and advanced, must win within a few moves) Rb1!

and White is virtually in zugzwang (eg, 30 Kg2? Qd5! or 30 Bg2? d3!)

Aug-10-19  Helloween: Or the simple (after 25.Kg2) Nxd1 26.Qxd1 Qc3, as was played in an actual over the board game by 2 IM's in 1995 which followed this exact game!
