Important post about this game from User: chesshistoryinterest :

<"The source is given as "'Latvis', May 12, 1929, p. 4". This is incorrect - this is the source of the Feigin - Bergs game above. The correct source for the Petrov - Bergs game is "'Rigasche Rundschau', 11 May 1929, page 17".>

  fredthebear: Efficient White attack featuring an exchange sacrifice and raking bishops.

BTW, the possible continuation featuring a queen sacrifice 24...h5 25.Qxh5 gxQh5 26.Bh7# is Blackburne's Mate pattern.
