Yes, <22...Bd6> looks idiotic, but else what is Black going to do besides resign? He's losing a piece anyway, since the bishop on g6 cannot be saved (for example, after 22...Bh7 23.Ne5+ Ke7 24.Qc7+, Black eventually gets mated).

<22...Bd6> at least freed the f8 square for the rook. And, as it turned out, that bishop on g6 nearly helped to save the game when White relaxed and let Black back into it.

Soviet players in the 1930's rarely gave up easily. I've been going through many of their games lately, and there are incrediblly uncompromising struggles everywhere you look.
