Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-11-10  mhelshou: Lasker talked about this game in "Chess for Fun and Chess for Blood"

"In the fourth round I faced Yates and after about twenty moves had him in such trouble that mentally I scored my first victory on the board. However, he extricated himself with an ingenious maneuver and playing indifferently from then on I lost not only my positional advantage but the game."

Jul-24-20  superstoned: Alekhine mentions a nice stalemate trick if White plays 45.Rb5 and the ensuing pawn race.

45...Rxb5 46.axb5 a4 47.b6 a3 48.a2 49.b8Q a1Q 50.Qd8+? g5 51.Qb8 Qa8+!
