Mar-16-06  alexandrovm: this is a very interesting game! This is a ruy Lopez exchange played by Lasker. White forfeits the right to castle early in the game so he can obtain a couple of doubled pawns (one of them is a passed pawn) in the center which won't let black develop fast enough. Grabbing pawns sometimes leads to a mistake like in 26. ...Nxh3. This move lets white trap for some moves black's knight and gains time to push his two passed pawns. 28. Nf6 is very elegant. Only by move 33 black knight can be activated but we can see that white passed pawns are already dangerous and on the 5th rank. 39. Re6, another elegant move preventing a fork on f6. White finishes off very nicely and once again traps black's knight. This is a very nice game by Lasker, impressive!
Aug-08-06  Chess Lou Zer: It's amazing how Lasker overcomes horrible pawn structure to win. Good game and worth a long look.
Oct-10-13  Howard: This was played in the last round of New York 1924, when Lasker had already clinched clear first place in the previous round.

What a way to cap off the tournament !

  NM JRousselle: Marshall had already clinched 4th place and had a chance to tie for 3rd with a win. That explains his otherwise risky play.

Yeah, that Marshall rarely took risks. Surprised he even strove for a win, dull drawmaster that he was.

I'm pretty sure Marshall strives for decisive results, even if it's a losing effort.

Oct-11-13  andrewjsacks: No Marshall swindle here. The winning technique was child's play for the great Lasker.

No, of course, Marshall was known for his dry, positional style, brilliantly punished by the arch-tactician Capablanca, master of irrationality and complexity on the chessboard, in their lopsided match.

I'll try to keep going until you get it.

Feb-16-21  tbontb: Marshall chooses a doubtful 5....Bg4 variation and Lasker maintains a small edge until 25....Rxe5 (better Nxh3+) quickly leads to an overwhelming position for White. As played, there is simply no stopping the passed White e and f pawns.

  NM JRousselle: This game was from the final round of the 1924 tournament. Marshall was guaranteed 4th place. He had a chance for 3rd place. That explains his risk taking strategy.
