Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-28-04  refutor: quite an entertaining draw involving "the drawmaster" schlechter. in the tournament book from 1895 hastings, lasker notes about the opening after 5.Nc3 "5.O-O followed by 6.d4 seems to take better advantage of the useless advance of Black's a-pawn". i wonder what moves are played today that will be thought "useless" 100 years from now ;)
Feb-28-04  Shadout Mapes: Lasker said that? Wow, I wonder what he thought when he started using that move in 1899?
Mar-31-16  Fanacas: I dont believe Lasker had a high opinion of a6 thats probably why he also multiple times played the exchange variation of the Spanish. Which is the most direct way of fighting a6 and which actually makes a6 sort of a waste of time. Also from Laskers manuel of chess i also get the feeling he did not like hypermodernism.
