Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-08-09  Ulhumbrus: After 21 Qxd4 Lasker converts his Queen side pawn majority into a passed pawn. He manages to arrange to advance gradually the a and b pawns to the fifth rank. Then he plays b6 as a pawn sacrifice, replying to ...axb6 with a6 whereupon his bishop attacks the queening square.
Oct-28-15  PaulBl: To me, Lasker plays the opening brilliantly, very effective, whereas Tarrasch doesn't seem to know what to do, like Bc8-f5-c8, which doesn't save the pawn. From here on Lasker converts to a win with iron consequence, great game for him.

Kind regards,
Paul

Dec-14-16  RookFile: I think that ...d4 was too committal by black. Be6 would be ok.
Dec-14-16  Granny O Doul: Pretty sure ...d4 there is still a main line usually answered these days by 11. Bf6 Qf6 12. Nd5 followed by Nd2.

Of course, this could easily be looked up by somebody with a bit of energy to burn.

That was a line which got played to death at GM level in the 1980s; Informators were replete with examples.
