  estrick: 23. . . . Nh5 appears to be a blunder

  estrick: Out of all 20 games in the data base that arrive at the position after 10 Nh4, Schoenmann appears to be the only one that posted his knight on f5 to good advantage. (that's true of the 12 games that were decisive, anyway).

White seems much more likely to lose if he trades the knights off.

  estrick: Just looked at the other 8 games with this line that ended in a draw. In 7 of them, white allowed the knights to be traded off. Here's the only other game out of 20, where White posted his knight on f5 A M Levin vs H Suechting, 1902

Lasker really let the white knight do him in in this game.
