  Chessical: A nicely constructed attack by Albin against a strong opponent Jackson W Showalter, several times US champion. Yet, if we transpose Albin's 22 and 23rd moves, his attacking scheme is made even more effective:

<22.gxf5!> exf5 23.Bxe4 fxe4 24.Rhg3 g6 25.Qh5 Rff6 26.f5 wins

Later, the simple <30.Qh7> Rf8 31.g7 would have won more quickly.

This is very much a late 19th century game, limited theory outside the Gambits, and solid "common sense" opening moves to achieve a weighty middle game.
