  Chessical: Janowski tries to win after an uninspiring opening playing Rg1 and the g4, but Bernstein does not panic.

27.Qf2? loses elegantly, but 27.e6!? would allow Janowski to fight on 27...fxe6 28.fxe6 Qxc3 29.Qe2

27...Rd1!! and Janowski has no good moves.

  shalgo: In "How to Defend Difficult Positions," (from the book The Art of the Middle Game), Keres points out that Janowski would have had much better drawing chances after 25.Qg2 Qxc3 26.e5 Qc6 27.Qxc6 bxc6 and then either 28.Rg3 or 28.f6 g6 29.e6.
