Dec-16-08  YoungEd: Beautiful final move!
Dec-26-14  morfishine: Beauty's in the eye of the Bertholder
Dec-26-14  Cheapo by the Dozen: Good one, <morfishine>.

Anyhow, it seems Black needed to connect his rooks at all costs. E.g., ... g6/Kg7 might have been worth trying around Move 18.

Dec-26-14  morfishine: <Cheapo by the Dozen> Yes, Black played like he really didn't know what he was doing, which is surprising since he was a very strong player (Of course the fact he was playing Tarrasch may have had something to do with it!). One thing too, Schlechter's refutation of the Danish Gambit was still 40+ years away

7...Kf8 was played to defend the pawn on g7. Alternatives to defending the pawn include 7...f6 and 7...Nf6. However, in both cases, white can push 8.e5 (although I'm not saying that's trouble or anything).

  kevin86: Is black the good doctor's brother...or not?

  kevin86: I guess black was the blood brother of Emmanuel...and an MD. I guess he could be called the "other Dr. Lasker"...but he was the OLDER brother.

Dec-26-14  andrewjsacks: Very good title for this game, and who could ever guess that Tarrasch had White?
Dec-31-14  1 2 3 4: <kevin86> you're right, googled it 3-2 days ago.
Dec-27-16  Charousek.jnr: Bertholder was implying that Emmanuel Lasker his brother would avenge his defeat to Tarrasch, as later on, indeed Emmanuel Lasker crushed Siegbert Tarrasch in a world championship match.So Tarrasch did hear from Bertholder's brother.
