  keypusher: Was any men's world championship this one-sided? (+7-0=4 according to the database). I guess some of Steinitz' and Lasker's matches.

  keypusher: Further evidence of Gaprindashvili's "maximalism": the four draws in the match lasted 52, 62, 66 and 90 moves.

Lasker-Janowski World Championship Match (1910)

  Honza Cervenka: <Was any men's world championship this one-sided?> Nona was a phenomenon in woman chess but you should take into consideration also the fact that Bykova was then 49 years old and much over her peak when she met 21 years old Nona in this match.
