  plang: 3..Bf5 is a move one is not likely to see nowadays as it is illogical. 4 f3 would have been an alternative valid response. I wonder if 10..c5 might have been playable though White is still clearly better. Alekhine pointed out that 16 Rab1 followed by Qd2 and Rfc1 would have been even stronger. 23..Nxb3 would have been answered by 24 a6! and if 24..Nxd2? then 25 axb+ mates.
Feb-26-10  echector: A paradox of this game is that an undeveloped light squared bishop may well be better posted than a developed bishop at f5 or g6

Yes, 9...O-O-O plays right into White's hands. White's attack is faster. But you know Janowski---he loves to attack at the expense of what the position calls for him to do. So 9...O-O-O was only natural. Except that he didn't even get to push his kindside pawns to start his attack!

The line is not objectively strongest, but that never stopped Kamran Shirazi from playing it against even the toughest players: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...

In our last encounter, at Philadelphia 1993, I opened 1.c4, so he never got the chance.
