Feb-02-04  ughaibu: Isn't this Edward Lasker?
Premium Chessgames Member When we receive pgn files that say simply "Lasker" (and not "Ed. Lasker" or "Em. Lasker") we have to assume it's Emanuel Lasker, in the void of other information; just like when we see "Kasparov" we have assume it's Garry.

If you know for a fact that this is Edward then please cite your source and we'll fix it right away.

Feb-02-04  ughaibu: All I know is that Emanuel Lasker didn't play in a tournament in New York in 1931, so it could be Eric Lasker.

  paulalbert: This is definitely Edward Lasker who played in the NY 1931 Tournament. Capablanca won this tournament with ease, winning every game except 2 draws. Paul Albert
Feb-02-04  Calli: Chessgames: It is Edward. Actually, you are missing most of Capablanca's games in this tournament, but have a duplicate of the Horowitz game. I will submit a complete PGN of all 11 Capablanca games.
