  Honza Cervenka: What about 29...Kc8?
Feb-14-07  sfm: <Honza Cervenka: What about 29...Kc8?> 30.Qe2 looks strong.
Feb-27-07  Andreiko: 21.Rfd1 is a bad move, what you think about 21.Rfe1?
Feb-27-07  Andreiko: "Honza Cervenka: What about 29...Kc8?"
I think that black can resist better...the variation is to analyze. A.
Mar-04-07  schnarre: No end to the sacs by White! I love it!

  beatgiant: I don't think the piece sac was sound. For example, Black can play 26...Rxf3! 27. gxh3 Rxe3 28. Rxe3 dxc4, reaching an endgame with a large material advantage.

  beatgiant: <sfm: <Honza Cervenka: What about 29...Kc8?> 30.Qe2 looks strong.>

But 29...Kc8 30. Qe2 <Bc4!> (can't be taken because of the attack on g2) and then 31. Qb2 Qh7 32. Rb1 Qc7, and White's attack appears to fizzle out.

Dec-18-08  thebribri8: Amazing!
Apr-07-09  sfm: <But 29...Kc8 30. Qe2 Bc4!> I can't find anything for White! Does that mean that 29.-,Kc8 would have won?
Dec-30-09  Karpova: Mieses considers this game to be his most exciting game.

Jacques Mieses: <it holds as much interest and excitement as I would ever wish to experience>

From Mieses' article ‘My Most Exciting Game’, pages 280-281 of 'CHESS', 14 April 1939.

  fiercebadger: White never had enough !,29 ..Kc8 is winning to be fair when you play ..27Rg8 its easy to miss Rxb7+ and that the mighty c pawn will win the day! I try and play thru this game without a board , lets hope it clears the cobwebs away!

  OhioChessFan: What in the world would possess someone to play 29...Ka8?

Jan-30-23  JohnTal: Is there a refutation to 13...e4 followed by fortifying his defenses with Be6 and Qf6 within his next 2-4 moves. Allowing 14 Qh7+ is a horrific error.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: Quite a swindle. 29...Kc8 was completely winning.
Jan-30-23  Brenin: <FSR: Quite a swindle. 29...Kc8 was completely winning.> It's hard to understand Black choosing 29 ... Ka8, which allows the discovered check 30 c7+, when 29 ... Kc8 avoids the check and blocks the advancing c-pawn. Perhaps Black was hoping for 30 c7+ Rxf3 31 Qxf3+ Qxf3 with an easy win after 32 Re8+ Rxe8 (not 32 ... Bxe8 33 c8=Q mate). White had been losing ever since the unsound N sac 13 Qh5, so this was indeed quite a swindle.
