Oct-27-09  timhortons: lasker 8. move 0-0 is a blunder, better is 8.Bd7

i just go over spasskys game and looking for some reason what advantage does black will gain in having his pawn structure wrecked in the queenside.the same thing happen here in laskers game, though rybka agree with 7. exd4 but i think the 8.Bd7 would prevent the wrecking of pawn structure.

i had a game on these position at, im looking for game to follow, im handling white piece, i doubt if my opponent would exchange the pawn on d sqaure nor he would let his pawn structure on queen side go into separate islands.

Oct-27-09  timhortons: nice continuation/position by rybka as oppose to the wrecked Queen side position of lasker handling of black piece and spasskys opponent handling of black piece.

  keypusher: <tim hortons> <lasker 8. move 0-0 is a blunder, better is 8.Bd7>

But the bishop is already on d7. This was a very common defense for Lasker.

Repertoire Explorer: Emanuel Lasker (black) (which doesn't prove it was good, of course).

Oct-28-09  timhortons: ill be back with this position tom keypusher, ill be off for work now,maybe one offbit move here for black is 7...exd4, i had game on on this and im lookin for possible continuation, gameknot databse has continuation better than what we had here, one reason maybe is that this line is not played by strong msters and gameknot players use computer in making a move, just my opinion.

Lasker scored +10=10-5.
