  chancho: Reuben Fine said that Lasker's games were like bottomless wells. He'd study his games and the next time he would find a new idea in them that he had missed.
Mar-27-12  WhoKeres: Lasker's win was due to his consistently more active pieces; first his King, then his Knight, and lastly the Rook. It didn't hurt that Goglidze hung a piece, either.

  tpstar: <iron john> If 34. Ke1 Rd1+ 35. Kf2 R8d2:

If 36. Rxd2 Rxd2 and the Ne2 is threatened, forcing 37. Rxc4 bxc4 with an easy win.

Jan-23-19  laskereshevsky: Yesterday same thought here... as tpstar showed the piece is lost in any case.

Having the book of the moscow1935 tourn. before to post it i waited to check if there are same further comments on it... this morning browsed/snnoped the book ( after many years..) and find the commentator had the same thought as tp and me. Is pointed too that the sacrifice of the exchange on C4 is useless

for the commentator the real mistake was not 34.e4 but 33.R1c2, wich deserved even a ?? sign... instead is write that 33.R3c2 equalaize the position.... so, for the comm. its a draw under correct play ( 33.R3c2)
