Maroczy and Vidmar follow Morphy and Max Lange

Geza Maroczy
Milan Vidmar
Today's puzzle on came from this interesting game between Geza Maroczy and Milan Vidmar. A straightforward Italian Game opening is answered with a Two Knights Defense and Morphy's push with d4 leads to the standard starting position of the Max Lange Attack. Classic stuff. Accurate play is absolutely necessary for Black to hang in, and Vidmar's 11...Bf8 leads to ruin. Follow along with the gamescore below:
