Apr-22-07  Ulhumbrus: Lasker comments on the position after 32...Qe6 in his book "Common sense in chess". Black threatens, according Lasker, 33...Nxf3+ 34 Nxf3 Bxf3 35 Qxf3 Qe1+ winning. How shall White answer the threat? After giving variations following alternatives to 33 Kf1! Lasker says that this is the only move to hold the balance, and now Black must play carefully: any too sudden attack will fail.
