  tpstar: In the Two Knights Defense, 4. Nc3?! Nxe4! leads to equality for Black, after which 5. Bxf7+!? is White's least successful option, since Black gets 6 ... d5 in and castles by hand. If 7. Ng3 e4 is strongest (8. Ng1 Bc5); Black is 6 out of 6 in the OE.

blackmask_one-tpstar0 (Yahoo 5/13/04): 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Bc4?! Nxe4! 5. Bxf7+!? Kxf7 6. Nxe4 d5 7. Ng3 Bd6 (7 ... e4) 8. 0-0 Rf8 9. d3 Kg8 10. Ng5?! h6 11. Nf3 Bg4 12. h3 Bxf3 13. gxf3 Nd4 14. Nh5 Nxf3+ 15. Kh1 Qh4 0-1 (16. Nf4 Rxf4! 17. Bxf4 Qxh3+).

  MissScarlett: This is game #81 in <Whyld(1998)>, and the date is <November 1891> not 1900. Then there's the issue that the game continues with <20.d4 Nxe3 21.Qb3+ Be6 22.Qxe3 Bb6 0-1>.

However, the given source, <Manchester Weekly Times 20-11-1891 [p.7]>, doesn't wholly tally with <Two amateurs - Lasker, simul>.

The column gives no indication it took place as part of a simul, and states Lasker had a consulting partner, too - it looks like <L Lasck> but it must be the <L Lasek> here: Jasnogrodsky / C E Moriau vs Lasker/ L Lasek, 1892 The November dating is probable,though not certain, since it only says <played recently in London>. Note that Whyld's dating of the other Lasek game to 1892 is only tentative, so they could have occurred about the same time and/or location (the site of the other game being London's <Anglo-Austrian Cafe>).
