Aug-05-14  weary willy: After 27 ..Nc4, there is really only one pattern available. I've never seen this game before - but I've won and lost that position many times

  FSR: 28.Bxf6 and if 28...Nxd2 (28...Re6 29.Rd8+), 29.Rh5#. First?
Aug-05-14  estrick: Doesn't Black survive if he plays 28 ...Be7 instead of greedily grabbing the rook on d2?
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <estrick> That does look like a decided improvement.

  Mating Net: Thank you Mr. Morphy, I couldn't have solved it without your help.

Aug-05-14  raviarun: <estrick>, yes 28 Bxf6 Be7 29.Bxe7+ Kxe7 30.Rd4 Nxb2 31.Nxg4 doesnt seem to give any advantage to white. Wonder if there is something better or it is a mistake by CG.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: Enklaar supposedly had a rating of 2400. He should have been able to find 28..Be7, since even I was able to find it. Maybe time was a factor.
Aug-05-14  messchess: I would have played ...
28. Bxf6 Be7
29. e5!
Aug-05-14  Coriolis: I can't see a clear win after Be7 either. It immediately looked a bit tricky for a Tuesday, just like last Tuesday. Maybe one day soon all swans will be black.

  al wazir: <raviarun: 28 Bxf6 Be7 29.Bxe7+ Kxe7 30.Rd4 Nxb2> 31. Rb4.
Premium Chessgames Member This is actually an error on our part. The combination is fully busted after 28...Be7, or if not, it's far too subtle for a Tuesday. We'll run a replacement shortly.
Aug-05-14  M.Hassan: White has a pawn for a Bishop.

28.Bxf6 Nxd2
29.Rh5 (any move)

Aug-05-14  diagonalley: even after 28 .... B-K2, white emerges with a big plus - surely winning
Aug-05-14  estrick: I 'Fritzed' it just to be sure, and the evaluation after

28 Bxf6 Be7, 29.Bxe7+ Kxe7, 30.Rf2 g3, 31.Rxg3 Nxb2, 32.Rf4 Be6, 33. Nf3 Rad8, 34.e5 Nc4, 35.Rg7 Rg8, 36.Rxg8 Rxg8, 37.Ne4 Ne3, 38.Nfg5 Bd5, 39.Rf3

is +.77 at at depth of 20 ply
