  Ron: I found this game with Sacrifice Explorer.

27.Nxg5! is sound.

After 27. Ng5 fg5 28. Bg5 Bg5 29. Qg5 Kf7 30. Qd8, Black did not play 31.... Na8 for Black would lose his rook after 32. Qxd6.

The combination starts with 27. Nxg5! and by the end of move 35, Isaac Kashdan is up a pawn and has a winning position.

  Ron: I just noticed something about this game which I missed when I kibitzed on Nov 29, 2019.

Kashdan does a sequence of moves that were done by Morphy before him, and by Fischer after him:

1. Move the castled king to the rook file
2. Move the rook to the knight file, the square that was occupied by the king 3. Push the knight pawn that is backed up by the rook, two squares.
