Jan Hein Donner

The Dutch player and organiser Lodewijk Prins and Jan Hein Donner had an intense rivalry and I will show a game from a match they played against each other in 1951. There were a few adventures before the result was settled.

I'll also be looking at another game from Donner which features a spectacular finish.

White to play. What is the best continuation?
