Sep-06-05  Autoreparaturwerkbau: I really enjoy the black's play after 14...Nxf2!. Lasker was without any doubt extra-class in late 19th Century.

Oct-22-06  MrMelad: Pillsbury writes that 14..Nxf2 is flawed because of 16. Be2, but the way I see it the flawed move is 15..Rxe3, if instead Lasker would have played 15..Bxe3 he still wins or at least he is securing a draw.

my variation:

15..Bxe3 Rc2 ..d4 and wins
or if 15..Bxe3 Qf1 - then either ..d4 or ..Bxf3 should at least equalize.

So 14..Nxf2 is still brilliant according to my amateur skills...

Now is the time you tell me why I'm wrong.

I don't think you are wrong, and more importantly neither does Shredder or Soltis. After 15....Bxe3 at a minimum Black is getting two pawns and a rook for two pieces, so he shouldn't be losing.

On the other hand I don't see how White is losing after 15....Bxe3 16. Rc2 d4. Soltis writes that Black has a small edge after 17. Be1 Ne5 and also after (instead of 16. Rc2) 16. Qf1 Bxf3 17. gxf3 Bxc1 18. Qxc1 d4.

  Knight13: 13. Bc3 is the biggest mistake. Surely White wanted to place the bishop on a better square, but couldn't he see that ...Ne4 threatens to screw up that bishop?
Nov-20-10  xombie: I suppose it would be presumptuous to post one's own game here but it's good to see GM emulation at patzer level! Here's perhaps my imitation of the Lasker game.
