White: John. Black: Janowski

Sicilian Defence.

1. P−K4 P−QB4
2. Kt−KB3 Kt−QB3
3. P−Q4 PxP
4. KtxP Kt−B3

The aim of this move is to provoke Kt−B3, and incidentally to prevent P−QB4. The latter move would give
White command of his Q5 and not only prevent Black's P−Q4 but also immobilise Black's KP unless his QP is to
remain "backward."

5. QKt−B3 P−KKt3

As shown on p. 216, P−Q3 must be played first. In any case Black must be wary of playing P−KKt3. If, for
instance, after P−Q3 White plays 6. B−QB4, and Black replies with P−KKt3, there follows 7. KtxKt, PxKt; 8.
P−K5!, Kt−Kt5 (PxP?, 9. BxPch); 9. P− K6, P−KB4, with advantage to White (see game in the match
Schlechter−Lasker).

6. KtxKt KtPxKt
7. P−K5 Kt−Kt1
8. B−QB4 P−Q4
9. PxP, e.p. PxP
10. Q−B3

Diag. 144

White has now three pieces in action and Black none. Black's game is hopeless already; his B2 cannot be
covered by Q−Q2 because of: 11. BxPch, QxB; 12. QxPch, and after Q−K2ch there follows: 11. B−K3, B−Kt2;
12. Castles QR, and 13. KR−K1, with an overwhelming attack.

10. ... Q−Q2

11. Kt−Q5

In view of the fact that his game is so much more developed, and that the opposing King will hardly be able to
escape from the centre of the board, White decides to sacrifice a Knight in order to open the files in the centre for
his Rooks, instead of following the simple line indicated in the previous note.

11. ... PxKt
12. BxP Q−K2ch
13. B−K3 R−Kt1
14. Castles KR

Castles QR is stronger still, as the QR gets into action at once.

14. ... B−KKt2
15. B−KB4 R−Kt3
16. B−B6ch RxB

If B−Q2, the continuation might have been: 17. BxB, QxB; 18. QR− Q1, Q−Kt2; 19. KR−K1ch, Kt−K2; 20.
RxKtch, KxR; 21. BxPch, etc.; or 18. ... Q−B1; 19. BxP, etc.
After 17. R−K1 Black could have held out a little longer with B− B3. After the text move, however, Black's
game collapses quickly before the concentrated onslaught of the White forces.

17. QxRch Q−Q2
18. Q R−K1ch Kt−K2
19. RxKtch! KxR
20. R−K1ch K−B1
21. BxPch K−Kt1
22. R−K8ch B−B1
23. RxBch K−Kt2
24. Q−B3ch Resigns.
