  Honza Cervenka: Very naive play on KS attack from black. Maroczy could have played 21.Rxc6 instead of 21.b5 and when he played that one move later, black could have tried 22...Bd7 with greater resistance.
Mar-14-13  morfishine: <Honza Cervenka> Yes indeed, Excellent point: The piece sac allows Black to put up much greater resistance; In fact, White has to be very careful

  perfidious: Good find by <Honza> at move 21-22, though even after 22....Bd7 23.Kg2 bxc6 24.bxc6 looks very good for Maroczy. This line has the virtue, unlike the unfortunate game continuation, of allowing Black to stay on the board.

The position after 5....e6 is actually a Slav Exchange, where Black has shut in his light-squared bishop; this should be a little better for White after 6.Bf4, though as always, there is a pronounced drawing tendency: Opening Explorer.

Mar-18-18  zanzibar: My source gives this game ending after 25.Qxa8 with Black resigning.

As usual, <CG> adds moves to spell out the continuation given in the notes (by Guest).

(Wish the Source tag got more use on <CG>).

This source also has <25.Qxa8> Black resigns; date <26 June 1906>, so from <Third Stage, Group B - Group C.>

  Phony Benoni: <Zanzibar> Gillam in his tournament book also ends with <25.Qxa8>, quoting a number of source including,<Allgemeine Sportzeitung> Two which I were able to check were the British Chess Magain (August 1906, p. 356) and the American Chess Bulletin (June 1907, p. 115). All are in agreement that <25.Qxa8> was the final move, so it indeed looks like the remaining moves are analysis.
