  Chessical: Janowski underestimates Schlecter's tactical ability, and his K-side gets ripped apart.

16...Kf8 the beginning of a dangerous plan to gain space on the K-side 16...Bxd4 is safer but gives up Janowsky's two bishops.

17...Bxf5!? is safer but Janowsky wants to play g5

18...g5?! The master tactician does not expect 19.Nxg5! from Schlecter the peaceable strategist.

23.Rxc6! A beautiful pendant to the earlier sacrifice if 23...Bxc6 24.Ne7+ wins immediately

26...Rc4 does not save Black, 27.f4 Ng7 28.Qe7 Ne8 29.f5 Rxg4+ 30.Kh1 gxf5 31.Rxf5 Nd6 32.Qe6+ Kh7 33.Rh5

30.Qh6+ Kg8 31.Qe6+ Kh8 32.Rc1 Ng7 33.Qh6+ Kg8 34.Rxc7

Jul-05-16  zanzibar: Does this game really go to move 30?

Most sources stop after 28.Qxg6+
