Feb-18-04  TheAussiePatzer: Nice game., I think preference should be given to annotated games when choosing the game of the day. It makes it more interesting and easier to learn from in a short amount of time.

  kevin86: A rare Lasker loss;He missed out of his attack on the kingside,lost material,and was left with a hopeless ending.

  vonKrolock: It will be easily forgotten that Bardeleben started the memorable Hastings 1895 T in great form, and after the ninth Round he was the only so far unbeaten (off course the immortal game Steinitz-Bardeleben, from the tenth (!) Round, was the turning point...) - To this game: 17...Qh6? was probably the key mistake (forced line follows till 22.Qh5! and better endgame for White)... Even so, whith his legendary tactical hability (attention to the clever 35...h5!!), Lasker almost manages to save a draw... Contemporary notes by Gunsberg (view text)

  Calli: 38.Kf3! is a move to enjoy. What is White going to do to meet the threat? Well, just march the King up the board. Simple after Von Bardeleben demonstrates.

Well, I prefer Bg5, but the text move is also fully playable.

  Honza Cervenka: <aw1988> Gunsberg would have preferred to develop the bishop on b2. See his comment of the 10th move of white.
Jul-05-05  aw1988: No doubt influenced by Zukertort.

  Honza Cervenka: <aw1988> I think that it was just Von Bardeleben's pet system. At least he used it in several games of the 3rd DSB Congress in Nuremberg 1883. See Von Bardeleben vs J N Berger, 1883 for a pretty example. Gunsberg also used the development of Bishop on b2 but he did not play c4. See Gunsberg vs Chigorin, 1890 or Gunsberg vs Burn, 1887
Jul-05-05  aw1988: I don't know much about Gunsberg, and even less about Bardeleben. Thanks.

Mar-28-07  sambo: Chessgames, I fully agree with this statement: <preference should be given to annotated games when choosing the game of the day. It makes it more interesting and easier to learn from in a short amount of time.>

Good game

Nov-04-10  Oceanlake: Black didn't mobilize either rook.
Jul-01-16  zanzibar: Completely trivial, but TB gives 49.Kf2 vs 49.Kf3.

As do <BritBase>, <CB>, <NIC> and <365>.

Maybe one of those examples of where <CG> is better than all the other DB's, as some are wont to claim?
