  keypusher: Copied from a game page:

<iron maiden: This game was part of a mini-match these two played consisting of five games. Lasker won every one of them. Next to Fischer's wins over Taimanov and Larsen and Steinitz's win over Blackburne, this match was probably the most impressive shutout in chess history. >

Bird anticipated Taimanov by dropping a rook in game 4: Bird vs Lasker, 1892
