Oct-23-05  DeepBlade: What a beautiful mate.

Black plays very sharp, forcing White to defend the uncastled and exposed king, and the Black Knight at b4(?? weird location) giving mate out of nowhere. White has a very cramped game, all his pieces smothering each other. Positional seen is this position very good for Black, White cant castle itself out of danger, or develop a minor piece. Black has already an castled King, an active Queen and a dangerous Knight.

White can't prevent the smothered mate because he will lose his Knight, White is so smothered...

<MichAdams>,
Lasker did not compete in the 1946 US Championship, in which Horowitz finished 6th, so this game may have been either c a club game or an offhand game.

Nov-15-11  AnalyzeThis: Lasker played like a girly man here, and got appropriately punished.
