  John Saunders: 19...Qd6 is a blunder and I cannot understand why White didn't just reply 20 Nc5, threatening Qxb7+ and Nxd7. Instead of 19...Qd6, Black could have played 19...Nf4 to which the only good reply is 20 Qf3 when 20...Rf7 looks about equal.
Oct-29-09  DWINS: <John Saunders>, Although Chernev gives 19...Qd6 in "The 1000 Best Short Games of Chess", I believe that Wolf actually played 19...Qd3 as given by Tartakower in "500 Master Games of Chess".

First of all, as you pointed out, simply 20.Nc5 wins outright. Mieses wouldn't have missed such an easy shot. Secondly, 20.Rc3 makes no sense after 19...Qd6, but makes perfect sense after 19...Qd3.
