  whiteshark: <30...Rxc4> looks playable to me.

The discovered move <31.Re3> will be met with <31...Bb5>.

May-31-18  Saniyat24: What a formidable and elegant structure within the first 18 moves by Nimzowitsch...!
May-31-18  Saniyat24: Paul (Pavel) List actually defended quite well, it was the unexpected 34.Rf5 that opened the gates for Nizowitsch...quiet a nice game...

30...Rxc4 is interesting. I first thought White has 31. Nd2 (R moves) 32. Ne4, hitting both d6 and f6.

Then I saw Black can try 30...Rxc4 31. Nd2 Rc7 32. Ne4 <e5> with a little bit of complications, then maybe 33. dxe5 fxe5 34.Rxd6 fxe4 35. Ng5+, followed by 36. Re6.

Finally I decided it was complicated enough, so I pressed the engine button. In seconds it found 30...Rxc4 31. Nd2 <Rc2> 32. Qd1 <e5> followed by a long line (33. Rff3 Rdd6 34. Ne4 f5 35. Ng5+ Kh6 36.d5 R6c5 37.d6 Qd7 38.Rd5 Rxa2 39.Rxc5 bxc5 40.Nh3 Qa4 41.Qc1+ Kh7 42.Qxc5) which it evals as -1.09.

That's highly unclear to me.
