|Sep-03-03|| ||AgentRgent: Dr. Lasker was conspicuously bad on the white side of the Falkbeer. Going only +3=2-6. |
|Apr-26-05|| ||Mefisto6: I don't get it. What's wrong with
14 Qxf5 ?
|Apr-26-05|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: Good point, <Mefisto6>! 14.Qxf5 seems safe to me too.|
|Apr-26-05|| ||Marvol: And 16 Kg1 is such a strange move I cannot believe we are looking at a genuine Em Lasker game.
No way he was so bad he would not simply capture with 14 Qxf5 or give the game away to an amateur trap like 16...Nxd4.|
What is wrong with this game? Was he playing his 8-year old nephew to teach him chess?
|Apr-27-05|| ||bernieno: I can't find anything wrong with 13. Qxf5, and neither can Tiger. As a matter of fact, in its analysis it is white who gets an attack and black who has to exchange queens even though he is a piece down. I first thought the game was played in a simul, it is Schrader's only game in the database. But even in a simul Lasker would probably not play that bad and i guess he would not play the king's gambit either. If THE Emanuel Lasker is playing white here he is obviously not playing for a win. Is it perhaps an exhibition game or something?|
|Apr-27-05|| ||RookFile: Something strange here, I certainly
do not trust the game score.
|Apr-27-05|| ||Darklight: The only other source that I am aware of has White's eleventh move as 11.Qa4 instead of 11.Qd3.|
It also says that this game, as well as another game that these two apparently played on the same day (Lasker won that one), was just an offhand game played at the St. Louis Chess Club in the United States.
"Schrader" may be a player named E.F. Schrader (I don't know his full name), who apparently won the U.S. Open Championship in 1905.
Of course, this is only one source.
|Dec-20-05|| ||Honza Cervenka: <"Schrader" may be a player named E.F. Schrader> It was Edward F. Schrader. White's 11th move was Qa4, not Qd3.|
|Jul-22-10|| ||GrahamClayton: <Darklight>It also says that this game, as well as another game that these two apparently played on the same day (Lasker won that one), was just an offhand game played at the St. Louis Chess Club in the United States.|
The New York Times of December 7, 1902 confirms that this game was played in St Louis.
|Oct-14-14|| ||TheFocus: This game was part of four exhibition games that Schrader played against Lasker. Schrader won two of the games.|
This was played at the St. Louis Chess Club on November 23.
|Nov-20-15|| ||Tabanus: Cleveland Leader, 23 Nov. 1902, p. 13:
<DR. LASKER'S FIRST DEFEAT. St. Louis, Mo. November 22. - Chess Champion Dr. Lasker met defeat in a single game here to-day, for the first time during his tour of America. The game was played at the St. Louis Chess Club, and Edward Schrader was the winner. The game was a King's gambit and was won by Mr. Schrader in seventeen moves.>
But the game score here (16 moves) is identical to the one in San Francisco Chronicle, 14 Dec. 1902, p. 10.

Schrader is referred to as a "tartar". They source the game from Reichhelm in <The North American>.
