  Honza Cervenka: Yes, very nice and also very instructive.
Nov-29-12  TheFocus: This is not from a simultaneous exhibition.

It was match game 2 from Lasker's engagement at the against the Franklin Ches Club, where he competed in matches against five players.

Aug-12-13  victor antoni: grande lasker... es lo maximo....
Oct-13-14  joddon: how ever does Laskers queen jump around the board like its dancing....who ever can take his queen from a3 to c1 to f4 to h2 .......has to be someone who didn't plan his moves but remembers tham from his last life!!IN AN actual endgame , ive seem the queens go all over the board....but in an actual beginning and middle game where pieces are covering every my little imagination I think that would be almost impossible to do things forsure....Lasker made the best players in the world look like the BIGGEST AMATEUR!
Oct-13-14  JimNorCal: Nice stubborn defense by Voight.
Shouldn't have given up his rook, though.
Nov-08-14  TheFocus: Final move was 83.Kg4 Ke3 and wins.

Match Game 2 in a series of matches against members of the Franklin Chess Club of Philadelphia. Played on December 31, 1892.

  Marcelo Bruno: <JimNorCal> You are right. If Voigt played, for example, 55. Rd5, I believe the best result would be a draw.

  Korora: As I said on my profile, I'm no expert. Still, even I see that with the moves in the order given here, 81. ...♖xf3-+ means that even before the trebuchet Black's f-Pawn is going to be an unstoppable passer regardless: 82. ♔ any is met with ...♔xg2 for a King, Rook, and Queen ending, and 82 g3 is met by ...fxg3} for a like result (with attempting to stop the passer failing as 83 ♔h3 g2+ 84. ♔h2 g1=♕#). The text can only reduce the imminent preponderance of material by one crow.
Feb-22-19  Saniyat24: with 42.Qf3 Hermann G Voigt sets up a very good defensive line, which a few moves earlier seemed an outright lost position...!
