Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-01-08  Knight13: <36...Bxh2> Fischer would wish he had this position to play ...Bxh2 on in his match against Spassky, 1972 round in.
Feb-07-15  poorthylacine: White should have played 39.Bc7,b8 or d6, in order to keep the control of the diagonal b8-h2, because after the move 39. Kg2? Lasker could win by 39...gxf4: 1: 40.g4+ Ke5
2: 40.gxh4 Bg3
3. 40. Ne4 Kg6

I think Lasker overlooked the winning move in the first variant after 41Kxg2: 41...Kd4 and then only White was helpless...

A pity, because it would have been another splendid endgame won by Lasker!...

  GrahamClayton: Marshall avoided the exchange of bishops with 24. ♗xd6, as after 24...♔xd6, the black King would take up a very commanding position in the centre of the board on d4 after either ...♔c5 or ...♔e5.
