Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-12-04  Reszoe: 23.Cxg5!! is the point. If White shifts his Nd5 with 23.Nxb6? axb6 24.Nxg5, after 24...Qh5 25.Ne6+ Kc8 26.Nc5+ Kb8 27.Nd7+ Black is safe, because his King can go in a7. So Kolisch forsakes his Nd5, thinking that if 23...Qxd5 then 24.Ne6+ and 25.Nf4+, winning.
Jul-29-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Masterful combo at the end! Enjoyable, to say at least.

The sac can be unsound but this line was then theory. See Opening Explorer
