Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-28-04  WMD: Henneberger won the second brilliancy prize for this game, but it's suprising that a player of Eliskases's class didn't find the saving 27.Rxg6+ which leads to a perpetual after 27...Kf8 28.g4 Qxg6 29.Qxe5 Qxg4 30.Qb8+.
Jul-20-05  george IV: But you see, it's not easy to resist de temptation of taking a Queen with check. I'm sure Eliskases did it in a split second.

Jan-23-13  SirChrislov: Soltis in <The 100 Best, "Near Misses">: After 27.Rxg6+! Kf8 white can proceed with 28.g4 Qxg6 29.Qxe5 and retain winning chances.

I don't see how. I see the perpetual but what winning chances?

"If white had found the right reply (27.Rxg6+!) the game would likely have found its proper place in history. It was awarded a special prize, poor substitute for a shot at immortality." -Soltis
