  whiteshark: A lot of weak moves by Bogoljubov.
Mar-01-08  Amarande: Not so much 'a lot', but the faulty opening appears to be enough ... the game is pretty much decided by move five. Black threatens Qxe4+ winning a Rook, so the Black beachhead at f2 comes in perforce.

A pity Bogoljubov did not allow his unknown opponent to demonstrate the beautiful mating net White is in at the end of the game, which would have required something more than just the Knight to be given up to escape.

If for instance -

22 Ne4 Bb7 23 Kg2 (if instead 23 h3 Bg3, picking up yet another Pawn at e5 without slackening the attack or giving White any real opportunity to save his Knight or King for that matter) Bxe4+ 24 Kh3 Be7 25 Bd2 Rf3+ and now:

a) 26 Kg2 Bh4! with a literal banquet for the double check lover: 27 h3 (or 27 Bxb4 Rxg3++ 28 Kxf2 Rg2++ mate) Rg3++ 28 Kh2 (again Kxf2 Rg2++ is mate) Rg2+ 29 Kh1 Rg1++ 30 Kh2 Bg3#.

b) 26 Kg4 h5+ 27 Kxh5 Rh3+ 28 Kg4 Bf5+ 29 Kf4 g5# or 29 ... Nd3#.
