Oct-04-04  Knight13: Bird played a great attacking strategy in this game. Old Bird still beats a World Champion E. Lasker is quite very interesting. Congratulations.
Oct-04-04  ughaibu: Lasker wasn't world champion until 1894.
Feb-13-05  crumpy: I like move 74.Bxe4. Gives a central bishop and it won him the game
Jan-26-07  Themofro: Great game by Bird.
Aug-07-10  abstract: Lasker should have resigned by move 76, I hate fighting for a lost game

  kevin86: Funny,the Bird pawn-f2-f4;is still there a hundred moves later!!
Jan-24-12  Marcelo Bruno: Bird's revenge for 7 he lost in the same year (5 in a match and 2 at another tournament) all played in London.
May-13-12  RookFile: Bird was a tough old buzzard.
Aug-05-13  Doniez: At move 53 Lasker did not take the pawn 53....Bxa5. Why? I can't see any possible defence by Bird.

  Sastre: <Doniez> 53...Bxa5 54.Rb5 b6 55.Rxd5 Rxd5 56.Bxd5 b5 57.Bxf7.
Aug-06-13  Doniez: <Sastre> ok, thanks for the combination
Dec-18-15  joddon: Bird lays down the lesson of how a light square bishops attacks all the the light square pawns!!!!!!!!!! a beautiful demo of how this modern game works....but in todays world its harder to get exchanges so soon with the knights and takes a much longer time to hold a valuable pice that will win pawns in the ENDGAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
