  tpstar: Interesting that Lasker chose the positional 9 ... Ba6 10. c3 Bd6 over the direct 9 ... ed 10. Nxd3 Qxg2 winning a Pawn and threatening to win the exchange (11. Rf1 Bh3). In the game White was OK except for the wayward Nb7 which got lost, then was lost.

rubenberg2003-tpstar0 (Yahoo 7/1/04): 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. Nc3?! Nxe4! 5. Nxe4 d5 6. Bb5 dxe4 7. Nxe5 Qd5 8. Bxc6+ bxc6 9. d4 ed 10. Nxd3 Qxg2 11. Rf1 (11. Qe2+ Be7 12. Qf1 Qe4+ 13. Be3 Bh3! 14. Qg1 Bg2) Bh3 12. Qe2+ Be7 13. Nf4 Qxf1+ 14. Qxf1 Bxf1 15. Kxf1 0-0 and Black won (0-1).

  Honza Cervenka: <tpstar> If 9...exd3 e.p., then 10.0-0 dxc2 (Of course, not 10...Qxe5?? for 11.Re1) 11.Qxc2 Bb7 12.Nc4 etc.

  tpstar: <Honza Cervenka> Thank you very much for your help. So 9. d4 is a Pawn sacrifice, best met by 9 ... Ba6 10. c3 Bd6, because after your line White has sufficient play for the Pawn. What about 12 ... 0-0-0!? 13. Be3 c5 14. f3 Ba6 15. Rac1 Qd3 for Black? Thank you.

  patzer2: The "obvious recapture" 31. bxc4?? is a blunder that loses immediately to the strong double attack 31...Rb6!

Better instead for White is either 31. e4 or 31. Kd2 with equality.
