|Jun-15-12|| ||FSR: Thanks, <AylerKupp>!|
|Jun-15-12|| ||hellopolgar: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baked_... for those who don't get the pun.|
|Jun-15-12|| ||FSR: <rjsolcruz: These opening moves were repeated in Tapia vs Ruaya in One Meralco Jr Chess Master Tournament 2012 up to 5.Bg5.
Not surprising. Those five moves have been played in over 5,000 games in this database alone. Opening Explorer

<24.Rd3! sprung 24...f3? for beautiful 25.Nf5+! Kh8 26.Qh6! that ended game.>
You meant 24... f6? of course. Lasker could have fought on after 24... Ndf6
25. e5 Rxd6.
|Jun-15-12|| ||vinidivici: nice and good game.
Chessgames has a nice interface with good animation. Where can i download the interface like that...?
|Jun-15-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: This is a great and classic game!
Great selection and pun, <FSR>!
|Jun-15-12|| ||MindCtrol9: Move <17 ...Qb6> I think brought all the problems.Lasker was a player I have allways admired,and he was great.I can say this:Lasker has been an idle to me.I tried to buy a book the other day "Essentials" but it was out of stock.Alexander Alekhine was a player with a great talent and very agressive although he never gave Capablanca the rematch,a shame.These games from the past give to any player the knowledge of chess,how to maneuver the pieces,how to create weak spot to explote later in the game.It's for me the way to play better even I have a program which I never use to comment or play againt anybody (Fritz 13)I use it to analize my mistakes after the game is over because I do not like to cheat.|
|Jun-15-12|| ||MindCtrol9: <DrMAL> I had the same opinion of you when I saw <17. ...Qb6> which takes away the BQ and giving White the complete iniciative in the game where Alekhine was a good attacker.After one apparently normal move,look what it brought.|
|Jun-15-12|| ||kevin86: The game looks like a recent puzzle.|
|Jun-15-12|| ||vinidivici: Where can i get the interface like chessgames?|
|Jun-15-12|| ||Tiggler: <vinidivici>
I suggest you go to the user profile for
on this site.
|Jun-15-12|| ||FSR: <LoveThatJoker: This is a great and classic game! |
Great selection and pun, <FSR>!>
Thanks, <LTJ>. I think this is the only game where I've ever succeeded in coming up with a pun for the "random game" that CG.com offered me. All my other puns have been in games that I've picked myself.
|Jun-15-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <FSR> That's awesome, man! This is obviously a classic - I'm glad you spotted it via the random game feature, took action on it, and that <CG> made it (rightfully so) GOTD!|
|Jun-17-12|| ||King Death: <FSR> This <rjsolcruz> is just a spammer, I've run across a bunch of his posts in other places that are as pointless as this one.|
|Jan-19-13|| ||Check It Out: Nice use of d6 by Alekhine, and of course the finish is great. |
And another good pun by <FSR>.
|Oct-10-14|| ||Sharkmeister77: An extraordinary and beautiful game. Lasker held the world title for 27 years. He did not make a habit of losing miniatures.|
|Dec-25-14|| ||TheFocus: Lasker finished in 5th place at the Zurich tournament held in Zurich, Switzerland with a score of +9=2-4. |
This round 12, July 25, 1934.
|Jan-31-15|| ||thegoodanarchist: The night on f5 is a BEAST|
|May-10-15|| ||A.T PhoneHome: Elegant Queen offer ends this one! Taking Alekhine's Queen would spell Rh3+ after which ...Nh6 just delays the inevitable.|
|Aug-20-15|| ||Eusebius: How would be the ending after 24...h6 instead of 24...f6?|
|Aug-20-15|| ||jvv: I suggest 25.Nf5 Kh7 26.Nxh6|
|Aug-20-15|| ||maxi: <FSR> <Although Lasker lost the world championship to Capablanca (20 years his junior) and had a minus score against him, Lasker always finished ahead of Capablanca in tournaments until 1936, when Lasker was 67. Specifically, Lasker finished ahead of Capablanca at St. Petersburg 1914 (Lasker's immortal come-from-behind victory), New York 1924 (scoring 80% against the world's best players at age 55), Moscow 1925 (finishing second to Bogolyubov), and Moscow 1935 (undefeated, half a point behind co-winners Botvinnik and Flohr, crushing Capablanca in their individual game). Simply astonishing.> A very interesting observation, FSR. I hadn't noticed this remarkable statistic.|
|Aug-21-15|| ||maxi: I don't know... Perhaps a reason for this anomaly is that Capa had a penchant for Russian women (very understandable considering their beauty) and when he was in the East he assumed it was party time.|
|Aug-21-15|| ||perfidious: In modern days, one suspects Capa would have given this fair maiden a second chance: Ksenya Rybenko.|
|Jul-26-17|| ||N.O.F. NAJDORF: Rather too many mistakes by Lasker: 12...e5, 13...e5 x d4, 17... Qb6 and 24... f6.|
Alekhine must have anticipated the final error by playing 24 Rd3.
