  TheFocus: This is not a simultaneous exhibition game.

It is match game 1 of a match series that Lasker played against the leading players of the Manhattan Chess Club.

Lasker defeated Baird, D. 3-0.

  Elrathia Kingi: Am I mistaken, or would 28.cxd3 have been a straightforward opposite-color bishop draw?

I think Lasker would agree with you:

"28. cxd3, leaving Bishops of opposite colors on the board would have given him better fighting chances," - Lasker in the <New York Sun>, October 13, 1892
