Lasker's Secret Weapon
Compiled by Calli
--*--

A collection of games where Lasker plays f4-f5, leaving a backward pawn on e4. Some annotators comment rather dramatically on Lasker-Capablanca 1914 when Lasker makes this move. In reality, the idea was part of his repertoire nearly from the beginning.
