  Honza Cervenka: According to's database this is one of Emanuel Lasker's simul games. Black was William M. De Visser.
Dec-22-05  Calli: Missing some moves at the end, the year is wrong...
Jan-01-12  Petrosianic: Is this definitely not an Ed Lasker game, then? Or just not a 1902 game, or both? And how do we know? It's relevant, because if genuine, it would mark a 74 year span for Lasker's games, which is equal best with Reshevsky.
Nov-08-14  TheFocus: This is not an Edward Lasker game but a simul game of Emanuel Lasker's.

Simul took place at the Manhattan Chess Club on October 17, 1902.

Lasker scored +14=8-3.

  MissScarlett: From game notes in the <Evening Star> (Washington, D.C.), November 1st 1902, p.32:

23.b4 <A mosquito dab to still the coming avalanche. He hoped for Bx-Pch and gain time for P-B3.>

Love the turn of phrase, but rather spoiled by the circumstance that he played c3 on move 18.
