Mar-02-08  Knight13: 10. b4! beginning of an end for Janowski, who lost due to Lasker grabbing all the space and restricting the J to death.
Jul-09-08  JimmyVermeer: This is the best ending I could come up with for this game.

  laskereshevsky: Lasker, what a player...

Its trully worth of ammiration the way Lasker overruled the Janowsky's bishops pair (and not nly in this game!)... we all know how much David well handle they...

More and more i go through the German player's games, my ammiration for him raising up and up....

Sep-21-10  soothsayer8: What an exciting game! Lasker put up some really nice looking pawn formations and the attack on the kingside near the end there was quite pretty as well.
Apr-18-14  Karpova: The game was adjourned after <31.Rad3>.

Feb-05-15  poorthylacine: Knight13: I agree; magnificent crushing by central domination.
Feb-05-15  poorthylacine: I could not understand the stupid way of Janowski's qualification of Lasker's style: ugly, crawling, disgusting, so bad that I cannot concentrate, etc... I guess this guy had serious psychological problems...

Anyway he spoke in this way about all players who defeated him, Schlechter and Marshall included...

What a pity, because he could really produce too beauty in chess!!

Feb-05-15  poorthylacine: And in this game, even it seems unbelievable, but Janowski could still try to counter the white pressure by choosing 31...Rh6! threatening a pawn sacrifice by pushing ...c6-c5, then ...Rc6...
