  lunchwithgina: Somehow, Menchik overlooked the obvious 22...Rf4. Maybe she fixated on the offered queen on a6. Or maybe she was already envisioning her knight on g6? Looking back at many of the mistakes I have made in chess, and in life, they were often prefaced by the thought that "it seemed like a good idea at the time"...
Sep-15-20  Granny O Doul: She didn't have many good options to choose from by move 22.

  Honza Cervenka: Well, the game was already lost in the move 22. Maybe the last chance to stay in the game for white was 20.Rxc4. 15.Qxa6 was not a mistake after double-edged 14...b5!? but 15.cxb5 was safer. In the move 16 or 17 white should have played cxb5.
