  Doctor Who: 16 d5? forced Black into the winning line. I don't see what's wrong with 16. Bc3. I think it would be good to trade that almost useless bishop for that incredibly annoying knight.
Oct-26-04  themindset: it's amazing that lasker played it out.
Dec-16-04  who: Edward Lasker is not to be confused with Dr Emanuel Lasker former World Champion.
Dec-16-04  who: what i don't get is why 14. Be1
it just seems to block off the rook for a very short term line on the black queen.

  Honza Cervenka: <Edward Lasker is not to be confused with Dr Emanuel Lasker former World Champion.> Yes, but this game was played in fact by Emanuel Lasker in a simul, not by Edward. See http://www.chesscafe.com/text/colla...
Apr-09-09  Chess Carnival: Don't you think the position after let's say 14...Qd5 looks like arriving from the russian game (petroff)?
Apr-03-12  BlackSheep: So .... when <Honza Cervenka> corrected <who> s 8 year old comment 7 years ago he must have been correct because at some time between then and now CG has changed the name from Edward to Emannuel , nice knowing of things Honza .
May-25-12  Antiochus: Probably was Berthold or Edward, but not the great Lasker.Emanuel did not participate in this tournament.

  TheFocus: From a simul in Budapest, Hungary on January 26, 1911.

Lasker's score was +18=8-4.

  OhioChessFan: 17 year old Breyer with a preview of his too-short career. He's one of a handful of people you have to ask "What could have been?"
Aug-19-18  SeanAzarin: <OhioChessFan: 17 year old Breyer with a preview of his too-short career. He's one of a handful of people you have to ask "What could have been?">

Yeah, he and Daniel Noteboom. Taken way too early.

Aug-19-18  SeanAzarin: Perlis, too. Though at least he lived past 30.
Aug-19-18  Granny O Doul: <Edward Lasker is not to be confused with Dr Emanuel Lasker former World Champion.>

Actually, he is to be confused with Emmanuel. If not those two, then who?

  Honza Cervenka: 17.Bxe4 was a blunder. After 17.Nxe5 white is OK.

Rudolf Rezso Charousek, Paul Rudolf von Bilguer, Klaus Junge or Cecil Valentine De Vere were other great chess talents who have died very young.

Aug-19-18  GM Maybe: Honza Cervenka
Don't they consider Gyula Breyer to be one of the founders of hypermodern approach, alongside witg Reti and Nimzowitsch?

  Honza Cervenka: <GM Maybe> Yes, and especially Reti valued him high in this matter. See https://reluctant-messenger.com/che...
Aug-19-18  JimNorCal: Game label at GotD banner is Ed Lasker vs Breyer yet the game itself is labeled Em Lasker vs Breyer.
Aug-19-18  Cheapo by the Dozen: Per the engine, the losing move was 17 Bxe4, which doomed White to have his kingside ripped open. Before that he had a small opening advantage.

  OrangeTulip: Of course the best defense against the Danish comes from a guy named Sorensen.

You know more in-depth chess history that I. Well stated.

Also, let's not forget that Ignatz von Kolisch could have been a World Champion if he hadn't quit chess at a young age to focus on business ventures.

  Breunor: To answer a 14 year old post, Stockfish isn't impressed with 14 Bd1:

1) -0.27 (21 ply) 14...Nd6 15.Bd2 b6 16.a4 Bxd3 17.Qxd3 Ne7 18.c4 Qf5 19.Qxf5 Nexf5 20.g4 Ne7 21.Rac1 Ng6 22.c5 Ne4 23.cxb6 axb6 24.Rxc7 Rxa4 25.Be3 Nf6 26.Rfc1

Recommended is
1) +0.48 (22 ply) 14.Rab1 Nxd2 15.Qxd2 Bxd3 16.Qxd3 Rab8 17.Rfe1 Qxa2 18.Rxe8+ Rxe8 19.Rxb7 Nd8 20.Rb8 Rf8 21.g3 Ne6 22.Rb7 c5 23.Re7 cxd4 24.Nxd4 Rd8 25.Qb5 Qa1+ 26.Kg2 Qxc3 27.Nxe6

Stockfish does agree that 16 d5 is best.

1) +0.34 (22 ply) 16.d5 Ne5 17.Nxe5 Qxe5 18.Bb4 c6 19.dxc6 bxc6 20.Rae1 Rab8 21.Bd2 Bg6 22.Re3 Rb2 23.Qc1 Qb8 24.Rfe1 f5 25.Bc3 Rxa2 26.Bb1 Ra4 27.Bb2 Rd8 28.Ba3 Rd4

We don't need a computer to see that white is lost after 17 Bxe4?

  Honza Cervenka: When Lasker was playing 17.Bxe4(??) instead of natural 17.Nxe5, he apparently missed 19...Rxe4!
