  profK: Wow what a great game, and heaven knows if the result was right, but you almost got to take a breather just playing through it ..
Aug-03-11  abuzic: Check with the other N: 62.Nge4+, much better was 62.Nde4+ and immediately e6 (62...Kd4? 63.Ne6+)

White could get rid of the b pawn and further sac the N: 62.Nxb3 and d7, e6, e7 will follow.

Aug-03-11  Ferro: Esto...
PARA MI

39. Rh1, Bb5
40. Ra1+, Kb6

  kevin86: Black is ahead a queen for three lowly pawns and a knight. But,it is he that is forced to draw.

69. Kg6 would have won. in fact, the number of wins that white missed in this game is rediculous.

Aug-03-11  abuzic: esto conduce a la igualdad

39. Rh1, Bb5
40. Ra1+, Kb6
41. Ned7+, Bxd7
42. Ra6+, Kb5
43. Rxa7
Y 43...Qh4.

Aug-03-11  ChitownChesster: Can anyone tell me why Black's queen stayed put for such a long time in the middle game while his King was traversing the board? It seems Black spent half the game trying to find a safe square for his King. I've never seen a game anything like this.

  piltdown man: I hate Grandmaster draws!
Dec-30-13  paulofx2071: 66)kf6 win
if 66).....Qh8+, then 67)Ke7, and if Qh4+, then 68)Ke8 and a pion promotione. If 68)...Qxe4, then 69)Nxd4!,b1Q 70)d8Q and win
Mar-02-14  KingPetrosian: Can't believe it! White was a good player - I don't see how he was unable to win this game after his 65th move! - especially after playing the game so well before that!
Mar-02-14  RedShield: Check out White's position after the 36th move: Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2014
May-21-15  Howard: Tim Krabbe's excellent website has a popular section about the 110 best chess moves of all time. Could someone out there please let me know why 66.a4 made the list ?!

The move doesn't look all that impressive to me. Or am I missing something ?

  offramp: Today's pun, "My Three Sons", refers to the three white pawns on d7, e7 and f7 in the final position.

If you add these to Black's 8 missing sons you have <eleven sons> and <"My Eleven Sons"> is the name of a very funny short Story by F Kafka published in 1919.

It's my Lock of the Week for Pun of the Year!

  Cheapo by the Dozen: I suspect White gave up the win when he played e7. Before that, playing his king to e8 would have provided shelter from perpetual check, and hence so would playing it to e7. Blocking that square is probably what cost the win.
Sep-30-17  Howard: Thanks much for the analysis of 66.a4! Was that, by some chance, the only winning move, though ?

  TheBish: "My Three Sons".... If they're about to become queens, wouldn't they be daughters?

  TheBish: I know the title refers to the old TV show, but I think if you got that reference, "My Three Daughters" works too.

  thegoodanarchist: After 17.hxg4, I cannot help but think that the OTHER Lasker, given Black's position, would have checkmated White in another 30 moves or so.

This Lasker just butchered the position.

LOL, yes, the three pawns are the Jenner sons.

Bruce/Caitlin won the decathlon in the Olympics.
