  keypusher: There are many better games than this with no posts on them. If you find a great game, good for you! Point it out to your fellow kibitzers. But if you <cant belive> there are no comments on a game played in an obscure match in 1893, well, prepare to encounter many surprises in life.
Oct-12-10  sevenseaman: The final Nb5 poser to Showalter has no plausible answer. A very well-played game wherein Lasker uses all available firepower.
