Aug-02-03  PVS: 29...Ne7 is atrocious. Much better is 29...Qd4+.
Oct-05-03  Kenkaku: Unfortunately 29...Qd4 is not check. I think black was pretty much done for.
Oct-05-03  Calli: Check or not, 29...Qd4! looks good. At least I don't see a clear win after 29...Qd4! 30.fxg8Q+ Kxg8

The point is that Ne7? unguards h6.

Oct-05-03  crafty: 29...♕d4 30. fxg8=♕+ ♔xg8 31. ♖b1 ♔g7 32. ♕g3 c5 33. ♔f1 =   (eval 0.33; depth 14 ply; 1000M nodes)
Oct-06-03  AdrianP: 29... Qd4! 30 fxg8Q+ Kxg8 31. Rg3 Qxb2+ 32. Kf1 Rd6 33. Qf5 Kg7 34. Rhg1 Qc1+ 35. Kg2 Qf4 36. Qc8 Qf7+ (with a slight advantage to White) is Kasparov's analysis in OMGP.

29. Ne7?? is a blunder.

Apr-30-10  just a kid: Just another boring Ruy Exchange right? Wrong!
Mar-29-14  capafischer1: Nice tactical fireworks with the power of initiative.
Apr-21-14  tranquilsimplicity: Chigorin at his best!#
Nov-30-14  Knight13: 14... a5 is a waste. 14... Bd6 is better.

<tranquilsimplicity: Chigorin at his best!#> You probably wouldn't have said that if Black had found 29... Qd4!.
