Apr-25-06  error: Where's the win?
Apr-25-06  percyblakeney: <error> Good question, and I'm not totally sure this is a Janowski-Steinitz game... This feels more like it:

Janowski vs Steinitz, 1898

Apr-25-06  Mendrys: I can't figure out the reasoning behind 44. b4. It seems to do nothing but lock in his rook on b6. I suppose white resigned because of the passivity of his rooks compared to black's active rooks. I still can't see the winning plan but I suspect this is because I am a patzer.
Apr-26-06  capanegra: I don't see a win here. After 46.Kd2 there is no way for Black to open the position and get in the enemy's field with his Rooks. For White it would be sufficient to move his Rook from a3 to c3.

On the other hand, 45…Ka7 looks unnecessary to me. I would have played directly 45…Rxe3 46.Rcxc6 Re2+ and eat the g and h Pawns. This would mean of course that 45.Kc2?? was a blunder.

Are we sure this score is correct?

  Pawn and Two: This game is not one of the 7 tournament games played by Janowski-Steinitz.

Also, this game is not included in the book, "The Games of Wilhelm Steinitz", edited by Sid Pickard. A collection of 1,022 of Steinitz's games.

Is this a valid Janowski-Steinitz game? What is the documentation for this game?

Apr-26-06  Ultra: What is wrong with 18 B f5 ?
Apr-26-06  Resignation Trap: According to , this game is Eduard Glass - Fritz Igel, Vienna 1928.
