  Chessical: Janowski liked playing h4 in the QGD, and this entertaining game shows how effective he was in attack.

14...fxg6? 14...hxg6!? is somewhat better, 15.Rh2 Nf6 16.Rdh1 Qc7 17.Nf4 Bg4 18.Qg3

15.Rxh7! winning, especailly after 15...Kxh7? 16.Qf7!

24.Ng4!? is also very effective, taking advantage of the fact that Black's Q has few squares. 24...Qd6 25.Rh8+ Bxh8 26.Nh6+ Kg7 27.Nf5+ Kg8 28.Nxd6 Rxe3 winning

27.Rh8+ is even quicker, 27...Kf7 28.Ne5+ Kf6 29.Qh4+ g5 28...Qc7 29.Rh8+ Kf7 30.Qh7+ Nxh7 31.R1xh7 mate.
