  FSR: Say what? First, this was Edward Lasker, not Emanuel Lasker. Second, the game score is wrong; 13.Bxh7+?? is a ridiculous move (13...Nxh7 0-1).

  Phony Benoni: Not to mention that the result should be <0-1>, since Factor won the game (Di Felice's <Chess Results, 1921-1930>, p. 153).

Mar-06-13  JimNorCal: Sure, but other than the names of the players, the result and the game score do you have any queries, corrections or comments about this game? :)

  Phony Benoni: I would like to submit a correction slip, but I'd also like to find the correct score first. No need to fix it twice if that can be avoided.

  Phony Benoni: Flash from the Bistro: thanks to <rookhouse>, we may have the correct score of the game. It looks like the scoresheet was missing 13.Bg5, to which Black responded with 13...Bxh2+. It's a nice little cheapo that way.

This would also explain why our score cut off with 14...g6 (actually 15.g3). The next move was <15.NxB>, obviously impossible in our version, but <15...Nxe4> in the actual game.
