Bartleby: A complete tactical disaster for Chigorin, almost as bad as his severe 16 move thrashing two years ago against the same opponent, same color:
Chigorin vs Janowski, 1895
Chigorin was a common pincushion of Janowski's, and a lot of it had to do with the Russian master's eccentric opening play. Chigorin was quite fond of these Qe2/d3 setups with white, particularly against the French Defence (He'd be the King's Indian Attack expert had he played today).
6. Be3 is more accurate. 6. ... Bg4 is not to be feared because 7. 0-0 NxB 8. PxN white can use the semi-open f-file for counterplay and his doubled e-pawns cover central squares (Duras often played Ruy Lopezes like this).
7. Nf1? Is a positional blunder. The position isn't a Breyer or a typical closed Ruy by any means and is too slow. 7. 0-0 followed by c3 is called for. 12. c3?! compounds the damage when white's d3 square is weakened, as well as 14. Qxe4? when white shouldn't clear the e-file in a position whilst still uncastled.
16. Kd2?? is the self-inflicted gunshoot blunder. Chigorin still could bail out at the loss of only a pawn with 16. 0-0 Bxc3 17. Ba3. Now Janowski's two "Jans" skewer what's left of the postition.
Nice, crisp play on Janowski's part.
