    After 3. Nxe7+, instead of 3......Kg7, black should have abandoned the rook and taken the knight with 3....QxN. Still a challenge to battle the white queen and rook. Nevertheless, the white knight was ultimately black's downfall.

    Yeah, you're probably right.  I think it was just a case of black forcing white to find the correct moves with the knight on moves four and five, as white's path to overwhelming advantage is very straightforward if black goes into 3...Qxe7, probably more than if black does not play 3...Qxe7.

    if the black queen takes the knight, then the white queen takes the rook, then it's a fairly even position

    Not for long.

    I'm quite sure this combination doesn't work without the seemingly meaningless white pawn on d5, which prevents 5...Qe6!
