  WTHarvey: Fwiw, 20....Rg6+ is mate in 3, w/21.Kh1 Qxf3+ 22.Bxf3 Rxe1#
Feb-11-07  ALEXIN: Why is white "eating" black pawns ? It is a basic principle to developp first our pieces.

  keypusher: <chochobon> Nothing.

From Soltis' book on Lasker:

<There must be an alternative universe out there because the tournament book and some databases give this game as continuing 15. Qxa7 Rb6 16. Re8 17. Ne4 Nd5?? 18. Nxd6?? Rxd6 19. 0-0 Rde6 20. Re1 Qh3 21. Kh1 Rxe2 White resigns. It's ludicrous to think both players missed 18. Qxd7, which wins for White, or 19....Rxe2, which wins for Black.>

Soltis gives the moves as 15. Qa6 Rb6 16. Qd3 Re8! 17. Ne4 Nd5 18. Nxd6 Rxd6 19. 0-0? Rde6! 20. Re1? Qh3! 21. Kh1 Rxe2 White resigns. Soltis doesn't say what his source is, though.

Jun-22-09  ughaibu: What does Whyld give?
Oct-30-11  Ulhumbrus: <chocobonbon: What is White's reply to 18.Qxd7? What am I missing?> On 18 Qxd7 Bb4+ clears with tempo the sixth rank for the Rook on b6 to come to e6 and defend its colleague on e8.

Did you miss that 18. queen takes knight wins a knight?

Oct-30-11  AnalyzeThis: I'm sure that Soltis' explanation above is completely right.

Of course, with the Soltis move order, this doesn't work. Further confirmation that this score is bollixed up. Do any of our historians have access to a contemporaneous source?

  perfidious: On reviewing this game, one is struck by the similarities to the line of the QGA in which White incautiously snatches the pawn at b7 (3.Nf3 Nf6 4.e3 Bg4 5.Bxc4 e6 6.Qb3), as seen in the rare example of a world champion essaying a QGA: Khodos vs Tal, 1962, five rounds after having a go at the poisoned morsel (Tal vs V Shiyanovsky, 1962).

It would not be at all difficult to believe Tal played Black in this miniature as well.
