  NM JRousselle: Wrong.

Black can try 26 Bc5. It's not great, but at least it's not immediately losing.

Why doesn't Black just play <25...Qxe6>?

Jack Spence's tournament book (Game 29) gives 24.KR-K1 (instead of 24.Rfd1). This makes sense of 25.Be6+, but now White can't play 26.Rxd8.

"Chess Life" (November 20, 1946, p. 4) solves the problem back on move 19:

instead of 19.0-0, <19.0-0-0!> is the move. Now White can play 24.Rhe1 and still have a rook on d1 ready to play 26.Rxd8.
