  Knight13: Who would've thought a piece all the way on the a-file could become a deadly virus? That 24. g3!! helped...

And why would Chigorin go 12...Bh4 13...Bxg3, trading his good bishop for something that isn't even doing anything? I personally prefer 12...a6 and then ...g5 ...Bb7 and then maybe set up and play ...d5.

  Pawn and Two: <Knight13> When Chigorin moved 20...Qh4, he may have not given enough consideration to White's threat of 21.Qd2 and 22.Bg5.

If Chigorin wanted to play his Queen to h4, he first should have played 20...b6. White would then have to avoid playing 21.Qd2?, as Black could respond 21...Bxe4! with advantage.

  Jonathan Sarfati: Cool defence and counter-attack by Janowski, who as usual used his two bishops very effectively.
Sep-16-16  bengalcat47: Chigorin preferred knights to bishops, so in many instances he trades one of his bishops for a knight.
