  offramp: In the previous game that he had with White, Janowski vs Lasker, 1909, Janowsky had played the same opening and lost drastically in 32 moves. Here he avoided ♙h3 but played roughly the same plan. 14...Nh5.

Once again White doubles rooks on the g-file. It is worth looking at the previous game. Lasker plays 19...g6.

White now takes the opportunity to have a walkabout with his queen and Lasker plays 21...d5.

That leads to a breakup of White's pawns. But Janowsky takes this as a wake-up call! He gives up the exchange and misses a good move:

40. d4!= White's position is too strong.

Soon after that, Lasker started an attack which was very strong. So the result of this game was identical to its great predecessor: 0-1.
