Zukertort sees that if he plays 26. hxg3, then Black will play 26...Qxg6.

So he has a great idea: give a check, ...Ng6-e7+, and <then> take the knight on g3.

The game goes 26...Ne7+ Kh8 and White now realised that he cannot play h/fxg3 owing to the knight check on f4! That move, ...Nf4+, would not have been possible with the white knight still on g6.
