Jul-26-08  Roark: Nice battle between these two.
Jul-26-08  Boomie: Lasker had a clear path to equality but perhaps he wanted to try for more.

Even so, at age 66, Lasker finished 1/2 point behind the 23 yr old Botvinnik and the 26 yr old Flohr. Heh. According to Chessmetrics, he had the highest performance rating (2707) in the tourney.

Aug-02-09  Knight13: <A ten years younger Lasker might have won this.> With the exact same opening, I don't think so.
Feb-05-17  ughaibu: If Lasker was ten years younger, Botvinnik would have been thirteen. I can see Lasker winning.
Feb-05-17  JimNorCal: Fascinating to watch Lasker squirm and bob and weave trying to encourage young Botvinnik to make a misstep.
