  keypusher: A game for the endless polemic between partisans of the ancients and moderns. Cohn was a respectable master -- here is his wonderful brilliancy against Chigorin from Carlsbad 1907.

E Cohn vs Chigorin, 1907

But in this game his ...f5 and ...d5 are a positional horror. Lasker locks down on c5 and after 21 less-than-scintillating moves the game is pretty much over.
