  Chessical: Janowski gambits a pawn against the French Defence for pressure down the <e> file.

<4...Nf6> 5.f3 exf3 6.Ngxf3 Nbd7 7.Bd3 Bd6 8.0-0 h6 9.Nc4 Nb6 10.Nxd6+ cxd6 11.c4, may be a safer way for Black to continue.

<18...Nf7?!> is inferior to <18...Nb7!> putting question to the N on c5, 19.Nxb7 (19.Nxe6 obtains two R's for a Q, but leaves White's N stranded on <a8> 19...Re8! 20.Bxd5 cxd5 21.Nc7 Rxe2 22.Rxe2 g5 23.Nxa8 Qc6)

30....Ng8? loses, but Black is running out of moves.

Janowski probably saw <35.Nxg6!> many moves ahead.

The end is: <40.Bg5+> Kg6 41.Rg8+ Kh7 42.Rh8+ Kg7 43.e8=Q
