Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-25-11  lentil: Methinks Evtifeev thought 13. ..Bf6 trapped the queen, but missed 14. e5. After that all he could do was bluster.
Aug-29-14  Karpova: This game is from the 4th All-Russian Championship in St. Petersburg, played in round 16 on 27 January 1906.

According to the 'St. Petersburger Zeitung', 23...Bd6 was the decisive mistake, while <23...Bxd4> was winning (24.Qxd4?? Rg6).

<23... Bxd4!> 24. Ne2 (<24. Rad1?!> Bc5 25. Rd2 Rg6 wins) <24... Bxf2> 25. Rxf2 Qh4 26. Kg1 Qxh3 27. Rg2 Qh1+ 28. Kf2 Qxa1; and wins.

Mar-07-17  lentil: <Chessical> So much I miss. Therefore, B-player I am. Even 23. ... Rg6 24. Qxg6 seems better than the game continuation. Had Peter son of Artemiev noticed the power of ... Rg6, the game may have ended differently. (There's many a slip 'twixt the cup and the lip.)
