|Jul-23-02|| ||azi: Hi. I like this site but I have a problem using it. I registered and login each time. Now I get a message saying ICS has closed right in the middle of playing over a game. Any one have some help? Thank you. Hope I hear from someone.|

|Jul-23-02|| ||chessgames.com: Two questions:
#1 - What java viewer are you using? (MyChess, ChessTutor, etc.), and have you tried others?
#2 - Do you ever use ICS or FICS? It sounds like some software you have installed (that has nothing to do with chessgames.com) keeps popping up.
|Nov-18-04|| ||ughaibu: Lasker seems to have missed a mate at move 21. |
|Nov-19-04|| ||Benzol: <ughaibu> Not sure I follow you here. White can try 21.f7+ h6 22.f5+ gxf5 23.g3 and the Black King is uncomfortable but it's not mate yet.
Where is the missed mate? |
|Nov-19-04|| ||Minor Piece Activity: Maybe he meant mate or extreme loss of material. In your line, I see no rescue for black except to sacrifice the rook because white has too many mating points. |
|Nov-19-04|| ||ughaibu: Benzol: 22.Qg6 etc. |
|Nov-19-04|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: ughaibu's idea is that after 22...Kxg6; 23.Rg3+,Kh7; 24.Bd3+,f5; 25.Bf5+,Kh6; 26.Nf7#. If that's correct, then it's a brilliant conclusion to a brilliant attack--and a bit of a surprising oversight from a World Champion who once said, "When you see a good move, wait--don't play it--look for a better one." |
|Nov-21-04|| ||Benzol: <ughaibu> <An Englishman>
Thanks guys. I missed 22.xg6+. |
|Nov-21-04|| ||draw o coward: hello everyone,
I have a question regarding move 18.
Doesn't 18 Re8! win the queen? if not, then why not? and if so then why wasn't it played? I'm sure I am missing something here.
|Nov-21-04|| ||samvega: 18.Re8 Qxd6 19.Qxd6 Rxe8 is an even exchange, after which white's attack peters out |
|Feb-11-07|| ||alshatranji: Regarding the queen's attack on f7, notice that black will play qa5+, which, as far as I can see, could lead to perpetual check. That's probably why the white queen has to remain on the fifth rank.|
|Feb-28-08|| ||keypusher: <ughaibu> 21. Qf7+ Kh6 22. Qxg6+!! is just stupendous.|
|Jul-06-08|| ||madlydeeply: I get the feeling that Mieses was a pure attacker. He must have been very quick at calculating possibilities. I think he liked to open up the game as quickly as possible in order to out calculate his opponent. He seems to no care about positional considerations at all. Lasker sets up the Reshevsky's double octopus on move 8 (two Knights side by side in an open center...endless forking possibilites see Alekhine vs Reshevsky, 1936) I suppose it's quite ballsy to try to outcalculate Mieses but he already has an huge development advantage.|
|Dec-24-10|| ||bengalcat47: In Reinfeld and Fine's book Lasker's Greatest Chess Game's they have pointed out that he had a more decisive move with 21. Kc1! All of White's threats remain, and Black cannot play 21...Qa5 because of 22. Re7+, Kh6; (..Nxe7 is also hopeless)23. Nf7+, Kg7; 24. Nxh8+ and mate in 3.|
