Black appears to miss a strong resource with <23...Re2>. Now, if for instane, <24.Bc3 Rxg2+ 25.Kxg2 Qd6> and Black's attack along his diagonal comes first.

Black may have missed this because it's a bit of a computer resource. But it's also possible he missed it because it never occurred.

I know of two sources for this game:

<American Chess Bulletin>, February 1925, p. 29

<Broolyn Daily Eagle>, March 5, 1925, p. A4.

Both these, bac at Black's 20th move:

Give <20...Rab8> (<20...QR-Kt1>), which would mean Black never had a rook on the e-file.

tSo I think we have ascore error here, but I'm not sure enough to insist on it.
