Jan-08-15  estrick: Marshall blundered with 16. b4? He didn't see that Lasker had the resource 17. ...Bxb4, which saved it from being captured with check on e7 in the combination that Marshall had envisioned.

In Lasker's words, he became "rattled" and followed that up with an evevn worse blunder, 18. Bxf6??

After that, Edward Lasker coasted to victory in this, the sixth game of the match for Championship of the US.

  Phony Benoni: Score question: after <27.Kg1>:

"American Chess Bulletin", APril 1923, p. 71 has <27...Qb1+> instead of 27...Qe1+. (This means that in the final position Black's quen is on b1 instead of e1).

Clinically 27...Qb1+ may the better choice, my Bozo 0.5 computer pointing out a forced mate in 10 starting 28.Kg2 Bd5+ 29.f3 Qc2+. I doubt Lasker was thing about that, however; all he probably wanted wa to get that damned bishop of f6 and back in the box.
