Nov-19-13  JimNorCal: These newspaper clippings are cool.
I wonder what they mean by "Pennsylvania Crack" though. And which of the club players won against Lasker?
Nov-19-13  DoctorD: "The Pennsylvania Crack" refers to his ability, that he is a crack (good; one of the best) player.

Lovely picture, but they appear to be playing an Evans Gambit. Double KP, black bishop on a5, and White has lost a pawn.

Lasker has just played 33.Qh5, threatening 34.Nxe6 Qxe6 35.Rg6. Reichhelm tries the clever 33....Bc6, but after 34.Nxe6 Be8 Lasker plays 35.Rg6 anyway, since 35....Bxg6 36.Qxh6+ Kg8 37.Nxf8 Qxf8 38.Qxg6+ is an easy win. Nice combination!
