  HeMateMe: Bird also had trouble against the LA Laskers, in the 1980s...

  GrahamClayton: Is 6...♕g6 a better option?

I still think White has an advantage after 7.0-0 d6 8.♘c3 c6 9.♘h4, due to his better development and open lines for his pieces.

  perfidious: <Graham> 6....Qg6 must be better than what Lasker chose, but a still stronger idea might have been 6....Qc5.

All the same, I prefer White-that's a lot of development for his two pawns!

  FSR: No way did Lasker play this ridiculous game.
Jan-30-12  RookFile: Sure he did. He was always doing stuff like this. One time he played a beginner, and the had the beginner give him queen odds. Lasker lost the game. Next game, Lasker gave the beginner queen odds and won. He sent the guy away totally messed up, telling him that the the extra mobility for the king was all the difference.

Yes, which is why Anand should have wheeled it out against Carlsen. Just the ticket!

  offramp: Poor black has to do everything except a belly dance to last even 12 moves.
Dec-18-15  joddon: why would a World Champion like Lasker pull out his Queen like a pure amateur.........SURPRISE THE HECK OUT OF ME.
Dec-18-15  RookFile: It was just a blitz game. Lasker was fooling around.

  chancho: When you have a head to head record like this, http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches... for Lasker getting mated in blitz by Bird was not exactly a blow to his ego.

Lasker probably had a nice laugh with Bird after this game.

Jun-12-16  Dhikey: 6.Qg5 was unnecessary.. By Lasker.. He had already had the advantage..6.Nc6 was the best move for black..
Sep-25-16  kishore4u: Its bird game
Oct-18-16  Aunt Jemima: Bird must have been smiling all night after this one! What an awesome game for him.
