  FSR: Very impressive that the players played the Modern Gipslis Variation 19 years before Gipslis was born.

  perfidious: <FSR>, that is supreme talent.

<Granny>, the more so as the 'C' is silent.

Easily impressed? P Damiano vs NN, 1497 features a Kholmov gambit in 1497, over 4 centuries before Kholmov was born.
Nov-06-22  Brenin: <Granny, perfidious>: ... and I believe that the "j" is pronounced as "y", German style. Definitely a pun for the eye, rather than the ear.
Nov-06-22  goodevans: 16.Qe1 rather than 16.Qc2 so that if Black follows the same attacking plan it will be the Q rather than the R that comes to g1 on move 19. White would then be threatening 20.b4 as well as 20.Rxg7+.
Nov-06-22  Chesschronicle22: In my opinion, one of white's fatal mistake is probably 11.gxf3 that allows 15. Bg5 then after Qc2, Bf4 wich preassures the h2 pawn and after moves later white resigned (but black only has -0.21 advantage.)

I would have played a couple more moves
