Mar-01-08  Knight13: Draw? You don't know that... The final position should be draw I guess but who knows, one might get into Zugzwang.
Mar-12-09  WhiteRook48: Lasker already beat Marshall 8 to 0

  GrahamClayton: I think Marshall erred in allowing a Queen swap after 18.♕c3 dc4 19.♕c4 ♕c4 20.♗c4 ♗c6+. 18...Bc6 exposing the White King to a possible pin along the d-file) might have been better. Seeing that Lasker was 3-0 ahead after 3 games, maybe Marshall's idea was to avoid another defeat at all costs?
