Jaques Mieses Vs Janowski / 1900 Paris


Mieses was known for his flamboyant brilliancies, and this is probably his best. In this game, Mieses leaves his queen hanging for 6 moves. And in all cases, black cannot take it safely. An amazing game that illustrates with great clarity...the power of the passed pawn.
