Jul-14-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 18.Ne7+! That's how simple chess can be. On the opened g-file (since f-pawns are both doubled!) Q-side-castled black had a great advantage, since there is no king behind to defense.
Feb-01-13  Cemoblanca: 22.Rg4!! Simply delicious!! :)
Dec-07-14  Knight13: 13... Bxf3? is completely unnecessary, opening the g-file for White's Rook(s) and wasting another move in an already inferior position. Instead, developing his Rook to e8 allows him to at least fight on--an option Black killed with 13... Bxf3?.
Feb-08-15  bengalcat47: The Black Rooks are just idle spectators.

  tpstar: <10 ... a6 A ruinous loss of time. 10...Ne8, as played by Harrwitz against Morphy in this position, is by far better.>

Except that game went 10 ... h6 11. Bh4 Ne8 Morphy vs Harrwitz, 1858 unless there is another contest lost to posterity.

This one ends surprisingly quickly.
