Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-28-04  Knight13: I think Bird can win this game. 47. Kg2 Qe2+ 48. Kh1 Qe1+ 49. Qg1 Qxg1+ 50. Kxg2 and then White starts rushing to the Queen side and use the bishop to attack the pawns and defend the king from coming. White might win this way.
Oct-28-04  Kean: Lasker always played like a modern player, but I think his understanding of chess was shared by very few in those 1890s years and only until the next decade he would face a field of skilled players with similar technique. I guess the drawing point is in the use of f3, then it seems perpetual check.
