  An Englishman: Good Evening: Chigorin gives us an impressive combination of defense and counterattack in this game. I believe the finish would have been 32...Rgf8 with a painful skewer.

  Honza Cervenka: White did not wait on crushing 32...Rgf8 or even 32...Rxe2+ 33.Kxe2 Qe3+ 34.Kd1 Rf8 35.Qxf8+ Bxf8 36.Rxf8 Kg7 37.Rf1 g3 etc. and resigned.

  Honza Cervenka: Btw, interesting idea for white seems to be 9.Nc3. One possible line is 9...Nh5 10.Ne4 Re8 11.0-0 Bxe5 (11...Qxh4 12.Bxf4 Nxf4 13.Rxf4 is fine for white too.) 12.dxe5 Rxe5 13.Ng5 h6 14.Qd4 Rf5 15.Nxf7! Kxf7 (15...Rxf7 16.d6 Qxd6 17.Qxd6 cxd6 18.Bxf4 b5 19.Bb3! is clearly in favour of white.) 16.Bxf4 Qf6 (16...Nxf4? 17.Rxf4 Qf6 18.d6+ Kg7 19.Rxg4+ Kh7 20.Qxf6 Rxf6 21.Rg8 and white wins.) 17.Be5 Qb6 18.Qxb6 with some advantage of white.
