  fredthebear: In the final position, Black is in check and has four moves available:

14...Kf8 15.Qxf7#.
14...Nc6 15.Qxf7#.
14...Bd7 15.Qxf7#.
14...Qd7 loses the Black queen, and eventually the game.

  Phony Benoni: American Chess Bulletin (July / August 1921,p. 134) gives <`1.Kr-Kr5> (12.Ng5) instead of 12.Ne5. Brooklyn Daily Eagle (July 7, 1921) and Philadelphia Inquirer (July 24, 1921) agree with ACB.

Either moves seems good enough.
