  Zenchess: Reti missed a quicker win: 23. Qd8 intending 24. Qf8+ would have mated Black on the dark squares.

What if 24...Nc6 ... ?

25.Bf8+, Kh7; 26.Ng5#

However, I'm not clear what White's best plan would be after 24...Nh6; 25.Qf6+,Kg8; 26.Ng5,Bxb5.

26. gxh5 opening up the g-file for White's fl Rook should prove decisive. After the White King moves out of the way to h1 then Rg1+ pretty much seals the Black King's fate.
