Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-30-08  Grumpi: The Great Akiba shows nerve and defending capability here.
Mar-14-09  YoungEd: An exciting game! A draw seems a fair result here after some nice attacking ideas and strong defense.
Jul-27-09  ToTheDeath: <{Mieses: After 17.Nxe6 fxe6 18.Rh3 Rf7 19.Bxf6 gxf6, White's attack is repulsed.>

I disagree- After 20.f5! exf5 21.Nd5 White has tremendous compensation for two pawns, achieving the strong point knight at d5 against bad bishop and shattered pawns. However at this time the art of positional play was still in its infancy.

26.Rg3 <! Tartakower: A magnificent point. White's linear pressure culminates in a double threat of mate (Qg7 or Qxf6)>

Actually 26.Rg3 is an error which allows Black to escape with a draw. After the correct 26.Qxf6+ Kg8 27.f5!! Rxe3 (27...Bxf5? 28.Re7 ) 28.Rxe3 Qd8 (or 28...Re8 29.Rg3+ Kf8 30.Qh6+ etc.) 29.Rg3+ Bg6 30.Qc3! White will regain his piece with continuing attack.

Very nice game, not without its flaws but full of charming little points.

Jun-02-17  cwcarlson: 26.♖g3=; 26.♕f6+ ♔g8 27.f5!
