  Honza Cervenka: 15...Qh4+ 16.Kg1 Rxf3 works too. After 17.Qxf3 Qe1+ 18.Qf1 Bh2+ black wins the Queen. The same thing could have happened in the game after 16.Qxf3 (16.gxf3 Qh4+ )
Sep-19-03  Hoozits: I was thinking an immediate Qh4 does fine as well (although perhaps not as well as the text). Nxh4 means mate with Rxf1 and Kg1 is met with Bh2+, winning the queen.
Sep-19-03  myratingstinks: Hoozits, I thought the same thing initially. Your line assumes that white will not move kh1 after bh2+ kh1. If I was white I would cling to my queen because of my material advantage. Thats just me though.

  Sneaky: Does 15...Qh4+ really win the queen? 15...Qh4+ 16.Kg1 Bh2+ 17.Kh1 and now what does Black have, other than ...Rxf3 ?

You don't have to play it on the 15th move, but Spotting ...Rxf3! is the key to this problem.

  wwall: I think this person is Leopold Loewy, Jr., playing Mr. J.K. Wiener Schachzeitung, 1906, p.33 identifies him as Leo Lwy II, which I assume is Leopold Loewy, Junior. His opponent was identified as J.K. The game was played on Feb 18, 1905.

13.h3 looks like the losing move. White had to play 13.Qe2 to prevent Black from playing ...Ba6, and if the white rook on f1 moves, then ...Nf2+, forking queen and king.
