Mar-02-08  Knight13: Losing 4 pawns!? Ssssssss.... This is a sneaky breakthrough by Lasker for sure.
Jul-26-12  King.Arthur.Brazil: After 28.Ng5 f6 29.Nxh7? Rh8 then white must give his N with 30.Nxf6 Nxf6, black had some chances. So 29.Nf3... Black didn't have Nf6 but also white didn't have Ne5 or Ng5... a price to pay!
Apr-18-14  Karpova: This game was adjourned after <31.e4>.

Source: Dr. Emanuel Lasker, 'Pester Lloyd', 1910.11.27, p. 11

Feb-20-16  Pawner: Strange loss. Houdini thinks this is a draw. Lasker loses at least the a- and b-pawns. After this there is no win for Lasker.

  perfidious: Have found a source which gives Lasker's last move as the obvious 46.Ra6, after which it is indeed all up with Black.
Nov-17-16  ughaibu: So, is Houdini correct? And if So isn't reading, anybody else have an opinion?

  keypusher: <ughaibu: So, is Houdini correct? And if So isn't reading, anybody else have an opinion?>

In my opinion, Lasker played 46.Ra6.

Nov-17-16  ughaibu: Keypusher: That strikes me as very likely to be true.
Nov-18-16  Poulsen: Chessbase gives 46.Ra6.
Premium Chessgames Member
  NM JRousselle: Surely Lasker must have played the obvious 46 Ra6. With the move given herein, Black can equalize with 46... Rxa3+.

  MissScarlett: <46.Rdg6> appears in <Whyld (1998)> based on the <Deutsche Wochenschach 1910 p.434>, so that source needs checking. The <BCM> and the <ACB>, follow Hoffer in the <Field> which has <46.Ra6>. But as it seems practically inconceivable that <46.Ra6> wasn't played, I'll go ahead and change it.
