Oct-10-06  Sleeping kitten: Funny ! Janowski plays the Janowski variation against Chigorin's Chigorin Defense. Nice attack by Janowski who has been a piece down for 15 moves. I didn't find any improvement for Black so this attack might be sound.
Feb-18-08  Knight13: Of course it's sound... Black had like barely any good pieces to even defend his king adequately while White had all its forces coming at him.

  WTHarvey: Lots of would be fireworks after the last move. Janowski's 31st move is the solution to a 'mate in 6' containing queen sacs.

31.Bg5 if 31...Re7 32.Qh8+ Kf7 33.Qxg7+ Kxg7 34.Bf6+ or if 31...Rf6 32.Qxg7+ Kxg7 33.Bxf6+

Jun-09-20  faulty: A crazy pun would be like PLAY YOUR INNER SELF because Chigorin plays Chigorin and Janowski plays Janowski
