Mar-27-05  Whitehat1963: Lasker uses the Opening of the Day to beat the Player of the Day.
Mar-27-05  paladin at large: What's the losing move - 25. f5? It opens the way for Lasker to penetrate cleverly. Pushing the queenside pawns supported by rooks and queen looks more attractive for Blackburne.

  keypusher: <paladin at large> Shredder finds several inaccuracies by both sides around move 20. But you're right, 25....f5 opens the gates. White's 28th move is very pretty.

In the opening this looks like a Steinitz-Chigorin game.

Jul-31-08  Boomie: Sans engine the move that bothered me was 27...Qd6. Surely moving one of the rooks to d8 is better than suffering that pin.

  keypusher: <Boomie> You're right too -- Rad8 is much better than ...Qd6. But Shredder gives White nearly a two-pawn advantage by that time anyway.
