|Oct-10-03|| ||AdrianP: A pretty fearsome fight, with a nice finish by Lasker. |
|Oct-10-03|| ||Calli: Note that Lasker does not fall into the Marshall trap 16.Nxd5? Bxd5 17.Qxd5 Qg5+ 18.Qxg5 hxg5. Lasker must have laughed at such attempts. |
|Oct-10-03|| ||drukenknight: I think Marshall misused his Q; it would be better to attempt to exchange Qs perhaps moving via b4/a4. |
|Aug-23-04|| ||notyetagm: Nice ending: 29 Qb7+ Kc8 30 b7+ Kc7 31 b8=Q++ Kc6 32 Qa(b)b6# |
|Nov-16-04|| ||kostich in time: Tarrasch, in the tournament book, said " Lasker demanded an extra honoriam to play in the tournmament. Judging by games like this, it was money well spent." Tarrasch-whose personal relations with his great rival were cool- always praised his play. Lasker was never better than in the Saint Petersburg finals. |
|Nov-16-04|| ||iron maiden: The exact quote: "In order to persuade him (Lasker) to come to the tournament the Commitee have paid him a magnificent sum of money, over four thousand rubles. I do not consider this excessive. (This last in italics.) He would well deserve an even bigger bonus for the splendid games he has played in this tournament."|
So one of the greatest chess rivalries of all time had a happy ending after all.
|Nov-16-04|| ||kostich in time: Thanks for the exact quote, Iron Maiden! Iwas quoting from my (admittedly )faulty memory. You are evidently lucky enough to own the Tournament book! |
|Jun-13-05|| ||Gregor Samsa Mendel: I just found out about this game (thanks, <Kangaroo>). Lasker rocks!|
|Jun-13-05|| ||BeautyInChess: 29. ... c8 30. a8+ b8 31. a6#|
|Jun-13-05|| ||Gregor Samsa Mendel: Oh, so that's why Lasker played 28 Nb5 instead of 28 Nc6+ (which would have lead to mate using the same moves <notyetagm> gave above for the actual game). It mates one move earlier. Very pretty.|
|Jul-07-05|| ||Kangaroo: Compare with < Capablanca vs Marshall, 1914 >|
|Dec-24-06|| ||Towershield: 29...Kc8 30.b7+ Kc7 31.b8=Q++ Kc6 32.Qab6 is also mate.|
|Jun-11-07|| ||keypusher: <Note that Lasker does not fall into the Marshall trap 16.Nxd5? Bxd5 17.Qxd5 Qg5+ 18.Qxg5 hxg5.>|
Marshall must have overlooked 16. Qa5. It doesn't look like much, but it wins: 16...Kb8 17. Nb5.
Later Soltis gives a nice line: 19...Nb6 20. Rd3 Nc4 21. Rb3 Qg5+ 22. Kb1 Nd2+ 23. Ka1 Nxb3+ 24. cxb3 Bd6 25. Qa7+ Kc8 26. Nxd6+ cxd6 27. f4! (threatening Rc1) exf3 28. Nxf3 Qe3 29. Re1!
I think Soltis stole the line from Kasparov's OMGP I. Not sure where Kasparov stole it from.
|Jul-20-09|| ||totololo: Kasparov is never stealling! His just drills for oil from dinosaurus rex!|
|Jan-26-11|| ||Oceanlake: Be6 is inferior.|
|Jul-31-11|| ||King Radio: I found it odd that Kasparov didn't mention 16... c6 (keeps knight out of b5, and doesn't give the white bishop the easy target), which looks better than 16... a6. White still looks to get a decent advantage (probably eventually winning), but seems more stubborn. I'd guess that ... c6 is what Lasker had expected, anyway. Anyway, generally faultless game by Lasker.|
