Oct-29-07  sneaky pete: The Oxford Encyclopedia, based on George Walker's <Chess Studies> (1844), gives the alternate finis 51... Nd2#. That may of course be a cosmetic intervention by Walker.
Jun-26-09  just a kid: 26...Rcc6? is bad IMO because Black has no compensation if White plays correctly.Then again his opponent didn't.AND his opponent was no less than NN so you might as well award it a !!.
