|Oct-06-06|| ||Dres1: That was easy|
|Oct-06-06|| ||Dres1: I feel like im watching a game on Yahoo! Chess.|
|Jan-08-08|| ||keypusher: Cf. Burn vs Lasker, 1900|
|Feb-29-08|| ||Knight13: Who the heck castles queen side like this?|
|Feb-29-08|| ||Petrosianic: Could you rephrase the question in the form of a question?|
|Feb-29-08|| ||Knight13: <Petrosianic> Who the heck wouldn't think that we wouldn't add each other to the ignore list after all this stuff btwn you and me?|
|May-02-09|| ||ScorpionInstinct: Poor Steinitz must've gotten tired it's 10th round for the old man.. 0-0-0!!!AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!|
|Jan-19-11|| ||Llawdogg: It is kind of strange to see the world champion castle long into danger rather than castle short into safety. Also, Steinitz never moved a rook again for the rest of the game. It was definitely his worst effort of the entire match.|
|Jan-19-11|| ||kingfu: Steinitz was 58 and Lasker 30. From the many discussions about Karpov, Korchnoi and others, we see that playing strength declines in old age.|
Sometimes castling on opposite wings signals a fierce battle.
Sometimes it is a mistake. I have heard the phrase "Castling into it!" This happens a lot when French players castle Kingside!
|Jan-19-11|| ||chancho: <kingfu> Lasker was born in 1868.
So he was 26 years old when he played this match.|

Twenty-five, to push pedantry beyond its limits (he was born December 24).
|Jan-19-11|| ||chancho: <keypusher> Yeah, you're right. The match ended on May 1894, so he was 25.
I was going by this link:
|Jan-20-11|| ||kingfu: Playing Lasker at 25?
May I offer a draw, sire?
|Jan-20-11|| ||Llawdogg: Lasker was just hitting his stride here.|
|Jan-22-11|| ||kingfu: Llawdogg,
I guess that draw offer was DECLINED!
|Jan-22-11|| ||DieHard: I don't think 0-0-0 was Steinitz's big error. His extended knight tour of Nh3-f4-d3-f2-d3 hurt him. Launching the f3-f4-f5 aggression from an inferior position didn't help either. Steinitz's theory expected attacks to be based on an advantage, not a disadvantage. He really was not himself.|
|Apr-07-12|| ||solskytz: 20. 0-0-0 doesn't look too bad - but should have followed most probably by 21. Kb2, holding it all quite nicely|
