Feb-09-05  meloncio: <chessgames.com> The black player is not Emanuel but Edward. Please check out http://xoomer.virgilio.it/cserica/s...

In any Lasker's biography you can see Emanuel didn't play a serious tournament from Moscow 1925 to Zurich 1934.

Apr-16-05  Kangaroo: See < Edward Lasker > and ask him how he played against Capablanca in Lake Hopatcong!
May-30-07  get Reti: Why not 9...Nxc3 10. bxc3 Qxc3?
Feb-18-08  get Reti: Oh, I see, 9...Nxc3 10.Qd2, and if 10...Bb4, 11. a3.

  plang: 7..exd is an established line but since taking the pawn on c3 looks too risky perhaps Black should just take the bishop with 9..Nxg5 because after Lasker's 9..Ndf6 he is behind in development. After 10..Nxf6 the position would have resembled a favorable version of the Exchange variation with the Black queen misplaced on a5 but instead after Lasker's 10..Nxc3? Black was even worse off. The alternative 22..Rc7 23 g3..Rg8 24 Rd1..h5 25 Rd6..Rg6 26 Qa4..a6 27 Qd4..Kb8 28 Rd8+..Rc8 29 Rd7 would have been winning for White. 23..Rc7 24 Rxb7+! would not have helped Black. 27..Qf5? was a blunder losing quickly.
