  keypusher: An early example of a King's Indian-type pawn storm. From Lasker's tournament book: <Black's play creates a most pleasing impression. His strategy and execution are harmoniously blended together.>

But it wasn't all roses between Lasker and this game. From the preface to Lasker's tournament book <This is a book in which analysis is accurate.>

In his notes to this game, Lasker writes after 28....Qd8

<Black could already win a piece by 28)....Kt(Ksq)-B3, but having the superior position in any case, he did not want to give his opponent the opportunity to break up the Queen's side Pawns by PXP and B-R5. This precaution was superfluous, but under the circumstances, appears reasonable.>

But as Tartakower points out, 28....Nef6 can be answered simply by Bg6. Annotating in those pre-Fritz days was a hazardous enterprise, and Dr. Lasker should have been more circumspect in the preface. To be fair, though, his annotations seem to be of high quality overall. Tartakower certainly thought so.

  fredthebear: White started off well enough but built his own prison. White's break through on the queenside was not anywhere near on par with Black's break through on the kingside.
