  iron maiden: More great stuff from Lasker in his later years. What happens after 33. exd5?

  beatgiant: The position would be extremely sharp after 33. exd5. An example of how it might go is 33. exd5 Qf6 34. dxc6 dxc3 35. Rxd7 Rxb2 36. Ba2 Qxc6 37. R2e7 Qb6+ 38. Kf1 Rb1+ 39. Bxb1 Qxb1+ 40. Qe1 c2 41. Rg7+ Kh8, leading to a perpetual check.

  offramp: This was from round 1 of the very strong international tournament at Moscow in 1935. Botvinnik & Flohr shared 1st place with 13 points, just ahead of Lasker with 12 points. Flohr and Lasker were unbeaten.

Lasker had become world champion 41 years earlier so this was a great result for the veteran.

Jun-17-06  GeauxCool: Lasker retired after the NY Tournament of 1924, where he won 1st prize. There was a suspicious dealing involved in that tournament and he felt the $$ in Chess was interfering with his artistic flavour. As <offramp> stated, the astonishing thing is that he did not have a single loss in this 1935 tournament, ahead of Capablanca. The papers at the time called this a biological miracle. -Fine

  Ulhumbrus: It seems that Lasker's remedy for Qb3 in the symmetrical Slav ( by which I mean the Queen's Gambit Declined Slav Defence symmetrical variation ) is ...Na5 and then ...Bd7 in reply to Qa4+, as in the Caro-Kann exchange variation.
Feb-10-12  Goscinny: ON 44. Qg7+ followed by Qc3 going for the d pawn ? Anyone

  denopac: <Goscinny> 44. Qg7+ Ka6 45. Qc3 Rxb2 46. Qxd2 Ba4. As in the game, the king goes to a6 and not a8 so that Qxd5 doesn't arrive with check at the end of this.
Jun-02-18  residentlegal: Ulhubrus, good point about the Qb3 defence and its correlation to the Caro-Kann exchange, I found that helpful.
Jun-03-18  ClockPunchingMonkey: Wonderful game by Lasker.

  morfishine: Wonderful game, by both sides
