Jun-09-15  poorthylacine: What a pity Pillsbury was sickly while participating this tournament; he should have allowed Janowski to win a wonderful masterpiece against him, but in this game, he could win in a brilliant way himself after 21.Nxf7!! Rxf7 22.Bxd5! ( )... Because 22...Nxe5 then is not possible, the rook f7 being pinned after 23. f4xe5!! winning!...
