  Honza Cervenka: 20.Nd4 looks quite good. Then black cannot take the Queen (20...Rxc6? 21.Nxc6 Qe8 22.Nxd8 Qxd8 23.e7 Qe8 24.Rxd5 ) and after 20...Bb7 21.Qa4 Ra6 22.Qb5 Rb6 23.Qd3 white has a clear advantage.

  Pawn and Two: White is winning after 20.Nd4!. Fritz indicates Black's best reply is: (2.01) (19 ply) 20...Bxe6 21.Rxe6 Qf7 22.Qc3 Rxe6 23.Nxe6 Qxe6 24.Qxc7 Qd7 25.Qxd7 Rxd7 26.Bxd5 Bf8.

If 20.Nd4! Bb7 21.Qxb7! (stronger than 21.Qa4 f5 - if 21.Qa4 Ra6? 22.Qxa6! Bxa6 23.Nc6 Qc5 24.Nxd8) 21...Rxb7 22.Nc6 Bf8 23.Nxe7 Bxe7 24.c4 Kg7 25.cxd5.

At move 48, Mieses missed another opportunity to win. Tarrasch showed the following winning line for White: 48.a5 Kxh5 49.a6 Bb6 50.a7 Bxa7 51.Nxa7 Kg4 52.Nc6 h5 53.Nxd4 Kf4 54.Ne6+. Fritz confirms this line wins for White, but prefers the move 54.Ne2+.

A very lucky escape for Lasker, Mieses had two winning opportunities, but scored only a draw.
