Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-26-05  WMD: The story of the misattribution of this spurious game appears in Winter's book Chess Explorations. It was actually played between Soldatenkov and Durnovo in or before 1898.

Lasker / Taubenhaus vs Janowski / Soldatenkow, 1909 is genuine though.

Dec-05-05  popski: I really would like to see thematic C21 tournament machine vs. man. This games are so exciting!
Dec-05-05  syracrophy: I think 4...cxb2? was a bad move. I would have preferred 4...d5! and then 5...Nf6. But I liked the game. Very good attack by David Janowsky
Jan-08-06  MorphyMatt: if 15... Qxc7 than 16. Qxf7+! Rxf7 Re8#

  Infohunter: <syracrophy: I think 4...cxb2? was a bad move. I would have preferred 4...d5! and then 5...Nf6.>

Though your line of play is perfectly good, there is nevertheless nothing at all wrong with 4...cxb2. I like Schlechter's line, wherein Black returns the two Pawns posthaste and then simplifies quickly to an endgame wherein he promptly mobilizes his 3-1 Queenside majority. To be specific: Black replies to 5.Bxb2 with 5...d5! Play then proceeds 6.Bxd5 Nf6 7.Bxf7+ Kxf7 8.Qxd8 Bb4+ 9.Qd2 (else Black remains a piece up) 9...Bxd2+ 10.Nxd2 c5! That's my preference.
