Is White winning? (Black to move)

16...Bxf5!! 17.Rxf5 dxe5 and Black wins back the piece on a3, leading to Black advantage (for example, after 20.Qxa3 Qb6+ 21.Kh1 b4 22.Qc1 bxc3 23.Rxe5 White still could have played, Wiener Schachzeitung no.2/3, January-February 1910. Page 48-49).

Later, after 26.Bc4:

Black to move. Easiest win?

26...a6!! 27.Qxa6 Qd7 28.Bd3 e4 (with exd3 and Qh3+ to follow).

A very nice tactical comeback by Réti, who surely looked bad after the opening but found the hidden weaknesses of the great humorist's position.

Feb-15-14  Karpova: This game is from the Vienna Chess Club Championship and was played in the last round, on February 20, 1909.
