  Calli: Marshall misses the win twice 44.Bd3! (Alekhine) and after 49...Bf4? he has the simple 52.Qxd5. Another "Great Escape" by Em Lasker.

  plang: Neither Alekhine or Marshall mentioned 18..Qd8 which looks like it might have avoided some of the unpleasantness created by 19 Ne5. Marshall avoids the material-winning combination 20 Ne6..Re6 21 Qd5..Qe7 22 Bf5 because blacks 2 bishops would have given him good defensive chances. With 25 Nc6 Marshall gives up his strong N to obtain play against blacks weak e pawn (exchanging one advantage for another). 26..Qg7 was a faulty pawn sacrifice that should have cost Lasker the game. 30 Qe3 defended against the threat 30..Rh2. Instead of pushing his a pawn directly Marshall dawdles allowing Lasker counterplay. Marshall eventually creates a kingside attack that should have won. A really great fighting game.
Oct-10-13  Howard: Lasker had either lost or dubious positions several times in this tournament, but lost only one game in the event (and that was to......never mind ! Look it up! He was world champion at the time.) The most notable "escape" he engineered no doubt was against the last-place finisher, Janowski. Geez ! That could have been the biggest upset of the tournament if Janowski had won, like he should have.
