  patzer2: Ironically, after defeating Bird's offbeat 6. ..f6 as white in this game, Lasker later played it himself as black to win in Schlechter vs Lasker, 1895
Aug-30-04  iron maiden: This game was part of a mini-match these two played consisting of five games. Lasker won every one of them. Next to Fischer's wins over Taimanov and Larsen and Steinitz's win over Blackburne, this match was probably the most impressive shutout in chess history.

  whiteshark: After <24...g5> Black lost his 4 kingside pawns almost by force. Well, <24...Rh8> wouldn't have been any better, or would it?

  perfidious: The player who is listed first in the heading is always White.
Apr-06-14  HeMateMe: Laker v. Bird?

Was this the beginning of the Larry/Magic rivalry?

Dec-22-14  TheFocus: Match Game 3 played in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England on August 31, 1892.

Lasker won with a score of +5=0-0.
