Here is a very interesting game played by Emanuel Lasker and Wilhelm Steinitz in England, 1895. Here, White is quick to attack with 24. Qc3 pinning Black's e5 Pawn and preparing for a series of "interesting" attacks on Black's defence. It continued with (24...f5 25. Nxe5?! dxe5 26. Qxe5+ Nf6 27. Bd4 fxg4 28. hxg4 Bxg4 29. Qg5 Qd7 30. Bxf6+ Kg8 picking up with 39. e5 Bxc4 and 40. Nf5 ending the game)! Truly a "neat finish to a brilliantly played game".
