Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-12-04  Bobak Zahmat: Nice game of Queen's Gambit Declined. Very equal play.
Mar-02-08  Knight13: Black plays ...c6 and then ...c5. Kind of awkward.
Aug-19-10  mrmietus: 9. ... Qa5
was a nice move for me. It led to equality and although, later, I realised that it is as good or maybe beter than Cambridge Springs variation.

Capa notes as good as always. I smiled when he said that taking with the pawn could be unclear because in blitz I always take with the pawn and it is really kind of hard to play for club player. Gm can take with the pawn and play aggressivly for space but I can tell that for weaker players it is much harder to play for white. You must play very accuratlly and you can have no advantage...

And I agree that c5 just after c6 is weird concept. Of course Lasker was well prepared and must have checked all critical variations.

Nov-17-14  Sanshine: Capablanca is simply the best!! I wish He should have been my personal chess coach and ... I could ... well take on Carlsen and definitely get the better of him.

  Ziryab: Capablanca can be your coach. Read his books.

I would include John Nunn's Chess Course, which includes more than a 100 examples of Lasker's games.

  chancho: This looks like a promising book on how to study Chess:

It should be available in May.
