  Chessical: Janowsky plays too agressively, and beyond the capacity of his pieces to form a coherent attack after <14.Rg5?>. A normal move such as 14.Rae1 would have kept the game in balance.

Recapturing with the N rather than the B on move 18 seals Janowsky's fate.

Janowski-Burn 1989, 14...? White is threatening 15 Nxd5, N or B x d5 16 Rxg7+ Kxg7 17 Qxh7#. Unfortunately for him, Burn is on the case and replies 14...g6!

<Chessical: Janowsky plays too agressively, and beyond the capacity of his pieces to form a coherent attack after <14.Rg5?>. A normal move such as 14.Rae1 would have kept the game in balance.> 14 Re1 is met by 14..Ne4

<14. Rae1> Ne4 should be a draw after:

<15. Qh5> Nf6 (<15... Bf6?> 16. R5xe4 dxe4 17. Nxe4 is good for white and 17...Be7? 18. Nf6+ is winning) 16.Qh4 Ne4 =

  FSR: 18.Bxd4 was tried in I Hakki vs S Kapnisis, 2003, resulting in a longer game, but still a loss for White.
