  sleepyirv: I love positional miniatures.
Oct-16-08  Whitehat1963: So, what's the finish? I don't see it.
Oct-16-08  Shams: I don't see a forced win but black is just hosed. after 22...a5 I might try 23.♗e7 Δ ♖d6
May-19-11  Dr. J: Wouldn't 12...Qxd7 have been better, e.g. 13 Qxd7+ Nxd7 14 0-0-0 c5?
Sep-12-11  Cemoblanca: Here is a possible continuation of the game:

22.a5! 23.♖d4 [23.a3 is also good]

23...h6! (Luft!) 24.♖hd1 [24.♖c4 is also playable]

24.♔h7 25.♖c4 26.♕b5 [26...♕e8 should also be possible]

26.a3! ♕h5! 27.♗g3 ♖hd8 [I don't like 27...c5?! because of 28.♗d6!]

28.♖cd4 ♘c6 29.♖xd8 ♖xd8 30.♘xd8

and white would still have good winning chances here. Cheers! ;0)

Sep-12-11  Edeltalent: <Dr. J: Wouldn't 12...Qxd7 have been better> I'd think White answers 13.Qb4 to pressure the pawn on e4. Possible continuations would be 13...Qc6 14.Bh4 and suddenly Black's king is in trouble or 13...Qd5 14.Rd1 Qc4 15.Qxc4 Nxc4 16.Rd4 and e4 is lost (16...Nxb2 loses after 17.Rb4).

  Phony Benoni: Black exceeded the time limit, though he resigned without waiting for a claim. (Ostend 1906 / A. J. Gillam, p. 373, quoting from English newspaper reports.

  plang: 5..Qe7!? had been played a few months earlier in the draw Schlechter-Mieses Stockholm but it strikes me as an odd move. In addition to Lasker's comments I think that 11 Bb5+! also benefits White by removing a defender from Black's queenside and increases White's chances of controlling the d-file. Despite Lasker's comment 15..Qd7 16 Qxd7+..Nxd7 doesn't look that bad for Black.

The first of 7 meetings between the two players - the other 6 were drawn.

11.Bb5+ is just a mistake. Why is White trading his good bishop for Black's bad one? After 11....Bb5+ Bd7 12.Bxd7+ Qxd7 13.Qxd7+ Nxd7 14.0-0-0 c5 White's rook can't get at the e-pawn and the game is more or less equal.
