Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-12-06  Whitehat1963: What a great attack against the Opening of the Day. Constant forcing pressure. Lasker throws out everything but the kitchen sink before finally trapping the king. This looks like a Morphy game.
Jan-12-06  shaikh123: last move is a checkmate.
Jan-12-06  ughaibu: Are you sure?
Jan-12-06  Whitehat1963: <ughaibu> Why be sarcastic? What's the point?
Jan-12-06  hintza: It's called a "joke", I believe.
Jan-12-06  ughaibu: What's the point of saying it's a checkmate?
Jan-12-06  Akavall: Usually it shows (#) for checkmate, but it doesn't here.
Jan-12-06  ughaibu: With Sjkbase it doesn't show any of the checks, who cares? Is the idea that when playing through the game the viewer needs to be told that it's check or checkmate? If they're really not sure, they could ask Fritz' opinion.
Jan-12-06  Akavall: I am not familiar with Sjkbase, and frankly I don't pay attention to (+)s and (#)s, so I don't even know whether or no chessbase shows them, for example.

I am just think that <shaikh123> was pointing out an inconsistancy in notation in this game(though it's not clear), which would be reasonably, but I don't see any other reason for his post.

Jan-12-06  KingG: <I am just think that <shaikh123> was pointing out an inconsistancy in notation in this game(though it's not clear), which would be reasonably, but I don't see any other reason for his post.> He should use Error Correction Form.
Jan-12-06  Akavall: Good Point!
Jan-12-06  olaf4lena: Why 8... Kf8?
how is that at all superior to O-O?
Lasker plays brilliantly, especially 10. h4!
Jan-12-06  Akavall: 8...0-0, 9.d4, followed by 10. Bh6, I think.

  keypusher: A couple of notes from Shredder:

8....0-0 9. d4 f5! is quite playable.

Later on, 17...d6! 18.Ng6 Nxd6 19.Rg3 Ne5! 20.dxe5 Bxe5 refutes White's attack.

A note from a patzer: 20.Qf6 is quite a move! Mate is forced after 20...Nd5.

Oct-11-10  raffa105: 8....0-0 9. d4 f5?? 10. ef threatening mate and the bishop.

17...d6 18. Rg3, threatening Qxf6

  TheFocus: From a simul in Forst, Germany on January 16, 1927.

Lasker's score is not known.

Jan-26-15  Whitehat1963: Thursday puzzle after 21...Qf8. Or perhaps a Friday puzzle after 20...Nd5.
