  Peligroso Patzer: A very fine game by Janowsky. Alekhine’s comment in the tournament book: “This was the Janowsky of former days.” This game, of course, was the highlight of an otherwise dismal tournament for Janowsky. He placed 11th in a field of 11 with a score of 5.0 - 15.0.

Although Alekhine does not comment upon it, so strong was Black’s position by move 38 that there was an alternative winning tactic available (which I find even more aesthetically pleasing than 38. … Rxe3, as played by Janowsky), to wit: 38. … Rxe5 winning a piece, for after 39.fxe5 comes 39. ... Bh4, skewering Queen and Rook with no viable way to avoid 40...Bxe1–+ (40.Qxh4 Qxg2#).

Dec-05-10  RandomVisitor: Perhaps white had a stronger defense:

24.Rxc8 Rxc8 and now a tough tactical situation only a computer can resolve:
