  BVer: I was hoping that cg.com would say: "But wait, there's more!" and include the Ginsu knife as a prize....
Dec-24-10  ossipossi: Never liked fianchettoing in Vienna game, Nge2 and h3 are also putting up an awkward system.
Dec-24-10  sevenseaman: Amazing!!

  Once: I think the explanation here is more that Lasker went pawn grabbing and that Popiel played very well, than the opening was at fault. The g3 Vienna doesn't usually fall over as quickly or spectacularly as this.
Dec-24-10  Llawdogg: Great game Ignatz!
Dec-24-10  Whitehat1963: Ouch!
Dec-24-10  Salaskan: Lasker really had a bad day here, 6.h3 looks useless and gives black a target, 7.Nd5 surrenders the dark squares and makes the fianchetto'd bishop bad, and then when under attack, he starts... pawn grabbing! No wonder he went down in style :)
Dec-24-10  WhiteRook48: but this was before he was in his prime.
He was smashed by Bird in ludicrous style in 1892...
Dec-24-10  CapablancaFan122: WOW. Lasker played like a total patzer here. I thought the opening was especially bad. But then again, it was still early in his career.
Dec-24-10  weisyschwarz: Great pun and game. Merry Christmas, all!
Dec-24-10  checkmateyourmove: A discovered smothered mate all in one...take that santa

  Penguincw: Nice game by Von Popiel!
Dec-24-10  kevins55555: Anastasia's mate, kind of.
Dec-24-10  drnooo: Its games, perhaps, like this that made
Fischer call Lasker a coffeehouse player...admittedly later he changed that estimate though I have never seen the words, just that he did.

  Phony Benoni: Which doesn't mean they won't use it again. I've been running into several repeats while compiling my Puzzle of the Day collections.
May-25-11  theagenbiteofinwit: 15.Bxe4 would have been a simple way of taking the wind out of black's sails.
Jun-21-11  Chessist: According to "The Collected Games of Emanuel Lasker" by Ken Whyld Black was a certain S. I. Polner.
Feb-26-12  Nimrod 21: <drnooo>
Well, of course Lasker WAS a coffeehouse player and, in style, seems to have remained one. He just took it to the ultimate level! Even Tarrasch finally came round to a sort of bewildered admiration.
Feb-26-12  RookFile: Lasker was willing to take tactical beatings like this in order to become a tactical powerhouse himself.
Jul-27-13  quinlan: Strange thing to see Lasker beaten so hard, in just some few moves! Anyway, Popiel did a nice job!

  FSR: Wow! Von Popiel made Lasker look like a beginner!
