Nov-16-04  molinov: I don't like 17.Bxg4 since it opens up the h file for the black rooks. Maybe 17.Be3 so as to play f3.23.Rf1?? very poor move.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Blackmar didn't play his own gambit vs. the great Lasker?! It's a time like this when you *have* to stick to what you know the best! Look what the MacCutcheon did for MacCutcheon when he played Steinitz!
Apr-22-14  thomastonk: <An Englischman: Blackmar didn't play his own gambit vs. the great Lasker?!> Lasker played the wrong Blackmar, see Armand Edward Blackmar.
