Jun-15-12  MindCtrol9: <DrMAL> I had the same opinion of you when I saw <17. ...Qb6> which takes away the BQ and giving White the complete iniciative in the game where Alekhine was a good attacker.After one apparently normal move,look what it brought.

  FSR: <LoveThatJoker: This is a great and classic game!

Great selection and pun, <FSR>!>

Thanks, <LTJ>. I think this is the only game where I've ever succeeded in coming up with a pun for the "random game" that CG.com offered me. All my other puns have been in games that I've picked myself.

Jun-15-12  LoveThatJoker: <FSR> That's awesome, man! This is obviously a classic - I'm glad you spotted it via the random game feature, took action on it, and that <CG> made it (rightfully so) GOTD!

  Check It Out: Nice use of d6 by Alekhine, and of course the finish is great.

And another good pun by <FSR>.

Oct-10-14  Sharkmeister77: An extraordinary and beautiful game. Lasker held the world title for 27 years. He did not make a habit of losing miniatures.
Dec-25-14  TheFocus: Lasker finished in 5th place at the Zurich tournament held in Zurich, Switzerland with a score of +9=2-4.

This round 12, July 25, 1934.

  thegoodanarchist: The night on f5 is a BEAST
May-10-15  A.T PhoneHome: Elegant Queen offer ends this one! Taking Alekhine's Queen would spell Rh3+ after which ...Nh6 just delays the inevitable.
Aug-20-15  Eusebius: How would be the ending after 24...h6 instead of 24...f6?
Aug-20-15  jvv: I suggest 25.Nf5 Kh7 26.Nxh6

  maxi: <FSR> <Although Lasker lost the world championship to Capablanca (20 years his junior) and had a minus score against him, Lasker always finished ahead of Capablanca in tournaments until 1936, when Lasker was 67. Specifically, Lasker finished ahead of Capablanca at St. Petersburg 1914 (Lasker's immortal come-from-behind victory), New York 1924 (scoring 80% against the world's best players at age 55), Moscow 1925 (finishing second to Bogolyubov), and Moscow 1935 (undefeated, half a point behind co-winners Botvinnik and Flohr, crushing Capablanca in their individual game). Simply astonishing.> A very interesting observation, FSR. I hadn't noticed this remarkable statistic.

  maxi: I don't know... Perhaps a reason for this anomaly is that Capa had a penchant for Russian women (very understandable considering their beauty) and when he was in the East he assumed it was party time.

  perfidious: In modern days, one suspects Capa would have given this fair maiden a second chance: Ksenya Rybenko.
Jul-26-17  N.O.F. NAJDORF: Rather too many mistakes by Lasker: 12...e5, 13...e5 x d4, 17... Qb6 and 24... f6.

Alekhine must have anticipated the final error by playing 24 Rd3.

Jul-12-20  Baahubali: His Nf5+ was beautiful but wait till you see Qxg6 ....that is legendary....proud to have seen it before i viewed his actualgame.

  Bishoprick: E. Lasker was a very old man when he played this game. Would have been interesting had he played Alekhine in his prime.
Sep-30-21  Lambda: This was Alekhine's only win against Lasker, but Lasker had beaten Alekhine three times previously.

(And while Lasker was indeed very old by this point, he was still one of the strongest players in the world. Just a year later he went undefeated at Moscow, only half a point behind the winners, and ahead of Capablanca.)
