19.? could be a Thursday puzzle- it's all forced, but still one heck of a line to compute

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Indeed, a great combination. It's probably already too late to save the game, but 15...d4 might have been better.

  Richard Taylor: Another beautiful mate here is if after 20. Rh3+

20. ... Nh5 21. Rxh5+ Kg8 22. Rh8! Nxh8 23. Nh6# !!

Tarrasch - incredible player.

Jul-05-11  ahmadov: I played through this game on guess the move but failed to gain the average point (40)... :-(
Jul-05-11  ahmadov: 16.Ng4 was something I missed... However, it is an incredible move which could be followed by 17.Nf6+ gxf 18.exf which leaves Black helpless after 19.Qh6 followed by 20.Qg7#
