  An Englishman: Good Evening: Well, our Player of the Day lost this one, and it's "only" a simul, but Emanuel Lasker played rather a good endgame here with his Knight outplaying a Bishop on a wide-open board. Petrosian would noted the key to victory at a glance; White has only two pawn islands to Bernstein's three--and two of those three are isolated pawns.
Dec-12-14  TheFocus: From a clock simul at the Rice Club in New York, New York on November 8, 1928.

Lasker scored +7=1-2.

  fredthebear: Typically, the long range Bishop is superior to the Knight with pawns on both sides of the board in the ending. This is certainly an exception.
