Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-06-04  Whitehat1963: What a great and wild fight. I'm surprised no one has commented on this game. Does Lasker have no resources in the end position?
Feb-06-04  InspiredByMorphy: What a game! I am a much bigger fan of Chigorin than Lasker, so forgive me if my opinion is biased, but I think Chigorin won this game because of his experience with the Kings gambit. I am surprised Lasker didnt develop his queenside pieces instead of attack down the king file early in the game. The very overlooked Chigorin plays excellently.
Feb-07-04  drukenknight: you surprised about the K file? I thought he should have got the Q to the e file faster!
Feb-07-04  InspiredByMorphy: Good point drukenknight! If Lasker would have played 10.Qe2 Nd7 11.Bb5 he would have had a better game.
May-11-07  actionhero56: mmmm... rice gambit
May-11-07  Fezzik: Does Laser have any resources in the final position? Yes, he can choose to get mated or lose lots of material. Resignation was the best move.
