Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-15-04  samiam: I am wondering why Lasker does 8. Kf1 here. This ruins his castling privledge; Bd2 or Nbd2 make more sense to me. That said, looking at other games in the database I have, Kf1 is the most common reply, though Bd2 and Nbd2 are also used (all usually with winning results). I would have played Bd2 here myself.

Jul-08-06  RookFile: Hi Sam - yes, Lasker spoils his castling priviledge. However, consider the effect of time: ...Bb4+ moves an already developed piece, and white replies with Kf1, which is not a developing move per se. So, now, it's black's turn to move, but he's got a problem: the bishop on b4 is on an exposed square, and is not attacking anything to boot. It's just asking for some tactic involving Qb3 at some point. In fact Raimond feels obligated to get the bishop out of there right away with ...Be7, which is not an unreasonable decision - although it costs black a tempo. This kind of forfeiting the kingside castling priviledge more typically happens in the king's gambit, but it does sometimes happen in these Evans Gambit/Guico Piano positions, and is something to consider if you're planning ...Bb4+.
