  perfidious: There was a 20th century who wrote of a knight at K6 being a rusty nail in one's opponent's knee.

For my money, White's knight on c6 fulfils the same function in this positional masterpiece, paralysing the enemy ranks.

The finish is a thing of beauty and POTD material, mais certainement.
