JANOWSKY (1860-1927) Janowsky was universally feared when he was on the attack; he produced many sparkling gems of combinative play. He had some conspicuous shortcomings, the most serious of which was his lack of self-control and self-criticism. He always played to win, even when there was no justification for so doing, and this was often the very reason he lost. he was a typical "natural" player, with a fine instinct for the position but no knowledge of theoretical niceties. He never shrank from any kind of complications, and never knew the meaning of fear} 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 d5 4. Bg5 Nbd7 5. e3 Be7 6. Nf3 dxc4 7. Bxc4 a6 8. O-O b5 9. Bd3 c5 10. Qe2 Bb7 11.
