  keypusher: Lasker's second straight defeat -- the first time this had happened in a tournament since 1895.
Jan-14-09  Dr. J: Remarkable recovery by Lilienthal, but couldn't Lasker have safely won a pawn (and probably the game) by 38 Rxb7 and 39 Bxg6?
Aug-10-10  newzild: This game helps to prove Newzild's Maxim:

"One bad bishop is better than no bishop at all."

Aug-20-10  Ulhumbrus: 23...Kd8 moves the King towards the Queenside with White's men placed for a King side attack.
Mar-24-20  joddon: a very defensive tactical fight for 1936
