  GrahamClayton: 25. g4 forking the Black knights would result in Black regaining the piece after 25...♘f6 26. gxf5 gxf5+ 27. ♔h1 e4.

Now 25...♘xf4? loses a piece after 26. ♖xf4.

It was match game 1 in Lasker's match series against strong players of the Manhattan Chess Club.

Lasker defeated Hodges 2-1.

  keypusher: <TheFocus> Thanks for all you've posted about Lasker's 1892 games. There are four against Hodges in 1892 in the database -- do you know which ones were played in the 3-game match? do you know the circumstances of the fourth game?

A bad loss for Lasker. His Ruy let him down.
