Jan-30-12  RookFile: Sure he did. He was always doing stuff like this. One time he played a beginner, and the had the beginner give him queen odds. Lasker lost the game. Next game, Lasker gave the beginner queen odds and won. He sent the guy away totally messed up, telling him that the the extra mobility for the king was all the difference.

Yes, which is why Anand should have wheeled it out against Carlsen. Just the ticket!

  offramp: Poor black has to do everything except a belly dance to last even 12 moves.
Dec-18-15  joddon: why would a World Champion like Lasker pull out his Queen like a pure amateur.........SURPRISE THE HECK OUT OF ME.
Dec-18-15  RookFile: It was just a blitz game. Lasker was fooling around.

  chancho: When you have a head to head record like this, http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches... for Lasker getting mated in blitz by Bird was not exactly a blow to his ego.

Lasker probably had a nice laugh with Bird after this game.

Jun-12-16  Dhikey: 6.Qg5 was unnecessary.. By Lasker.. He had already had the advantage..6.Nc6 was the best move for black..
Sep-25-16  kishore4u: Its bird game
Oct-18-16  Aunt Jemima: Bird must have been smiling all night after this one! What an awesome game for him.

  JointheArmy: I wonder if this might look like a Morphy-Lasker blitz game if they ever happened.

Morphy was undefeated against Bird, just fyi. ;)

  JointheArmy: <Bird also had trouble against the LA Laskers, in the 1980s...>

This made me LOL.

Mar-29-20  morfishine: Spectators would flock to Bird's table to watch him play
