Apr-06-04  badbadLeroyBrown: What an ugly beatdown! NN didn't bring his "A" game.
Feb-09-05  Granite: I really enjoy that he didn't both taking white's queen which probably would have prompted a resignation, but instead went for mate.
Nov-01-05  lentil: shouldn't chessgames give credit where credit is due and acknowledge that White is the famous and long-lived punchng bag "NN"?
Dec-31-06  shadboltbill: I love Lasker, but hasn't anyone noticed that he could have mated a move earlier with 11...qd4++?
Dec-31-06  Sibahi: A mate with the knight is more aesthetically pleasing ..
May-25-08  JG27Pyth: Patzer vs Legendary World Champion... Patzer plays King's Gambit... hmmm wonder how this one will turn out?

  keypusher: An interesting precursor to the WannaBe Gambit.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: The problem, is that white did not play Ke2 <SOON> enough! =)

  GrahamClayton: <parinda>i have to admit i laughed out loud during this game . but the final position is charming.

The final position is amazing:

a) the White Knights side by side
b) the Black bishops side by side
c) the Black Knights side by side

Dec-16-14  billyhan: Lasker had a quicker mate with "8...., Qf4", but I must say that his method was more entertaining.

  Alex Schindler: Was this played April, 1 1900? That final position is something between art and macabre humor lol
Premium Chessgames Member
  sydbarrett: I'll one-up the previous comments and say that that is the most outrageous final position I've seen

  OhioChessFan: I would be proud to lose such a game.

Me too. At least we'd be in the anthologies. And this is the only immortality you and I may share, my <OCF>.

  FSR: A picturesque final position. Note that if Black's queen were removed, he would still have a forced mate after (a) 13.Ke4 f5+ 14.Kf4 and now either 14...g5+ 15.Kxg5 Rg8+ (my line) or 14...Ng6+ (which Houdini points out mates a move faster) or (b) 13.Kf4 g5+ 14.Kxg5 (14.Ke4 f5#) Rg8+.

  perfidious: The king at the head of his troops, though this merely led to his demise.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: Note that there are no pieces in the immediate vicinity of White's king. It reminds me of the Famous Last Words of General John Sedgwick during a battle in the U.S. Civil War:

"Don't worry, boys! They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance!"

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <PB> Ah, lovely--after that classic utterance, Gen Sedgwick did see the elephant.
Dec-02-15  pumping707: Lasker humiliate the king....dts very classical...
Dec-02-15  offramp: The rarest of mates: a mirror mate.
Dec-04-15  ozu: BRAVIS
Mar-20-18  CheckMateEndsTheGame: Lasker being a troll master by not going for mate with qd4++!
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: If you're a beginner playing two of the strongest players on the planet, the King's Gambit may not be your best choice of opening. Unless you need to get home soon, that is.
