  Gregor Samsa Mendel: No indeed, they were played almost 20 years apart. Pretty impressive that the same person was world champion for that entire time. And he sure didn't play like a wimpy old geezer in the later game.

It is not too late to start discovering the second world champion and his impressive contributions into our game.

By the way, during his championship, Lasker was treated by many opponents and chess journalists similar to what we can now see and hear about Kramnik and even (wow!) Kasparov.

People were sure that Lasker was NOT the strongest since 1895 till 1914, and he had to prove his strength zillion times!

Oct-16-17  offramp: The shortest draw in this tournament. After the final move, 31...f5+, White could play 32. Ke3.

That looks drawn to me.

Oct-16-17  RookFile: In other words, mirror image. Very interesting.
