Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-12-04  Whitehat1963: Player of the day plays one of his two major rivals in the opening of the day, while the other rival (Alekhine) provides analysis.
Nov-12-04  Whitehat1963: Actually, I had to look to see who had which pieces. Lasker seems to play very passively here. If I recall, Capablanca won this tournament (or, at least, shared first place). Perhaps he was more than content with a draw at that point in the tournament, and I think Alekhine correctly points out that white is slightly ahead. Was Nottingham 1936 Lasker's last major tournament?
Nov-12-04  iron maiden: <Whitehat1963> It was. Pity the last major encounter between these two great rivals had to be a quick and painless draw. If I remember right Lasker had a minus score at this point in the tournament, so he was probably glad to end up with a draw against one of the greatest players in the world.
Nov-20-06  slomarko: was this game played in the last round of the tal memorial?
Nov-25-11  AnalyzeThis: You could show this game to anybody today, without naming the players, and convince them it is a 21st century game. It looks completely modern.
