Mar-10-06  Knight13: I was once beaten like this, just like this in the final position. Who likes it as Black? :p
Sep-14-15  Everett: Good N vs bad B is enhanced by the presence of some heavy pieces. Easy for Janowski to win a pawn and trade down to a winning endgame.

Black can play 48...rxe5+ followed by 49...Rc5, and play on. He's still lost, but it's not immediately devastating.

However, there is a typo in the score."AMerican Chess Bulletin", March 1905, p.162 gives <45...Rc4<, resulting in this final position:

When 48...Re4+ is ineffective.

I'll send in a correction, not that anyone is likely to look at this game for another twelve years. But at least that means <CG> will still be around in 2030.
