  keypusher: A really magnificent game from Lasker, playing over the whole board. Mieses hands Black a center pawn mass and open a-file in the beginning and gets gradually ground into dust.
Aug-22-07  Maynard5: This game shows how far ahead of his time Lasker was as a positional player. He correctly recognizes that White has several weak squares, notably b3, utilizes his control of the a-file, and plays quiet blockading moves to restrain White's activity in the center. Slowly, but inexorably, these small advantages accumulate.

  keypusher: This is more of a vague impression than a statistically established fact, but I think Lasker had a gift for playing with knight and bishop against the bishop pair.
Apr-18-11  Rama: 42. Rd4 Nxd4, 43. Bxd4 c5, 44. exd5 Rxe1+, 45. Rxe1 Rxe1+, 46. Qxe1 cxd4, 47. Qe6+ ..., looks like a drawing resource (perp).

  keypusher: <Rama: 42. Rd4 Nxd4, 43. Bxd4 c5, 44. exd5 Rxe1+, 45. Rxe1 Rxe1+, 46. Qxe1 cxd4, 47. Qe6+ ..., looks like a drawing resource (perp).>

42.Rd4? Nxd4 43.Bxd4 c5?? 44.b3 smothers Black's queen. 43....dxe4, on the other hand, leaves Black with an overwhelming superiority.

Apr-20-11  Rama: Hey! 44. b3 ..., is an excellent find. But so is 43. ... dxe4. Yet after 44. fxe4 ..., in your line, the move b3 is still there.

The idea was, knowing a loss is imminent find a way to survive. Desperate times, y'know.
