Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-03-05  Granite: Lasker completely outclassed him.
Mar-15-06  alexandrovm: it's interesting to note that Lasker playing the white side of the french don't worry on castleing but on attaking the black king keeping his own position monitoring black moves. It's a very instructive game...
Jun-23-13  Xeroxx: <Nc6 is superior.> Is it really?

  kingscrusher: Objective it seems 10.g4 looks too slow with the K in the center still and Black can play tactically to exploit this in theory:

Analysis by Stockfish 14:

1. -+ (-1.92): 10...Ncxe5 11.fxe5 Nxe5 12.gxf5 Nxd3+ 13.cxd3 e5 14.Qg3 Bxf5 15.Bd2 Rc8 16.Nf3 Bxd3 17.0-0-0 e4 18.Ne5 Bd6 19.Bh6 Qf6 20.Qxg7+ Qxg7 21.Bxg7 Kxg7 22.Nxd3 exd3

Black is clearly better

Jan-14-23  tbontb: Lasker's direct if suspect attack (better 10....d4) is met by imperfect defence and he wins rapidly.
