Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-07-06  paladin at large: Were they just warming up for the New York tournament here on an ocean liner - does anybody know the details of this one?

  keypusher: According to Soltis' recent book on Lasker, Tartakower and Lasker played this game to test Lasker's assertion that Black could successfully accept the gambit pawn in this variation.
Jun-07-06  Calli: Yes, it is from the ocean crossing to the tournament. The original source of this game is "Hypermodern Schachpartie" by Tartakower, 1925. Alekhine, Bogoljubow, Maróczy, Réti, Tartakower and Yates all boarded the SS Cleveland in Hamburg, Germany on February 28, 1924 and steamed on to NYC. I think there is also a Lasker-Bogo from that ocean voyage.
Nov-14-11  Ulhumbrus: One of the reasons why the move 18 Nexd4 makes 18...0-0-0 unhealthy is that after the removal of both of the black Knights on c6 and c5 White's Queen is able to come to a7.
Sep-26-14  The17thPawn: <keypusher> - If Soltis is correct than Lasker would have been playing for pride to support that assertion. Makes me think the game was more than a skittles loss.
