Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-12-12  Karpova: Dr. Emanuel Lasker: <White ought to have played to win by 25.Qxd4 Rxd4 26.Be3 Rd7 27.Kf2 Rf8+ 28.Ke2. The white pieces can be posted safely and effectively on the e-file, and the superiority of the piece would assert itself in the end.>

From the St. Petersburg 1909 tournament book, translated by Richard Teichmann.

Apr-17-14  Karpova: C. Rosenkranz in the March 12th 'St. Petersburger Zeitung', notes that von Freymann offered the draw although he had a clearly better position. He sincerely believed that Spielmann could not be caught by his competitors. By presenting him with half a point, he had overlooked that other masters could have left Spielmann behind, e. g. if Spielmann also lost his last game versus Dr. Bernstein.
