  kevin86: The last move is mate! Another Boden-like mate;is this my imagination,or have we seen lots of Boden and Boden-like mates lately? They are both elegant and effective.

Jun-09-13  Karpova: According to page 79 of the 1900 'Wiener Schachzeitung', the actual game went

<10.Ke2 Bg4 0-1> while the game continuation shown here (10.gxf3 exf3+ 11.Be2 f2+ 12.Kf1 Bh3#) is merely analysis to show why the knight cannot be taken.

Dec-08-14  billyhan: With "6.Qe2", White over-powered Black's lethal d-pawn (the one that ended up on the f-file as one of the three mating pieces) and should have eliminated it with "7.Nxe4". Of course, it's deadly potential wasn't easily discernible before move 10, and the forking of Black's Queen & Rook, with "7.Nxf7" must've been too tempting.
