  whiteshark: How about renaming it <Lasker's QGD simultan defence of 1892>?
Aug-05-13  Alpinemaster: This is hardly a 'masterpiece'; though, it does show how a novelty is best played by only a Master of top caliber in his PRIME (note this is a simul the young, up-and-coming Lasker played against his arguable superior in classical play). I'm not sure how 7...gxf6 was decided upon but it is ridiculous for a future WC to be playing.

I argue that the 7th move removes this game from a proper 'Cambridge Spring's Defense, perhaps more accurately a distorted Semi-Slav with a confusing Queen-Sortie. And 11.g3 is embarrassing. It obviously does nothing, and indeed on move 20 is proven to burn a tempo.

Gotta love how Lasker finds a way to destroy the massive White Kingside onslaught and activate the rooks though! There is the sign he was gold.

Happy Debating.

Aug-05-13  thomastonk: <Alpinemaster: note this is a simul> Lasker played in October and November 1892 many exhibition games in the Manhattan Chess Club, which are in this database wrongly marked as games from simultaneous exhibitions. This game is on of them. Here is a source: http://www.chessarch.com/excavation....

  OhioChessFan: Agreed, <Honza> Strange choice to play Rd1 instead of 0-0-0. And 19. Kf1 seems like another time wasting move.
