Dec-24-10  kevins55555: Anastasia's mate, kind of.
Dec-24-10  drnooo: Its games, perhaps, like this that made
Fischer call Lasker a coffeehouse player...admittedly later he changed that estimate though I have never seen the words, just that he did.

  theagenbiteofinwit: 15.Bxe4 would have been a simple way of taking the wind out of black's sails.
Jun-21-11  Chessist: According to "The Collected Games of Emanuel Lasker" by Ken Whyld Black was a certain S. I. Polner.
Feb-26-12  Nimrod 21: <drnooo>
Well, of course Lasker WAS a coffeehouse player and, in style, seems to have remained one. He just took it to the ultimate level! Even Tarrasch finally came round to a sort of bewildered admiration.
Feb-26-12  RookFile: Lasker was willing to take tactical beatings like this in order to become a tactical powerhouse himself.
Jul-27-13  quinlan: Strange thing to see Lasker beaten so hard, in just some few moves! Anyway, Popiel did a nice job!

  FSR: Wow! Von Popiel made Lasker look like a beginner!

  MissScarlett: Prove it!
Jan-16-21  realdumptrump: Well, do we have Whyld's source then?

What's good for the goose...

Jan-16-21  realdumptrump: I have a 1975 source giving the game as being played in Vienna, fwiw.

  MissScarlett: With Polner or Popiel?
Jan-16-21  realdumptrump: Polner - https://books.google.com/books?id=m... (no real preview, but that's the source)
Jan-16-21  realdumptrump: (Maybe google translate confused the opening with the location?)
Jan-16-21  realdumptrump: OK, reading a little about Polner - I would doubt he was outside St. Petersburg during 1889 (I mean, it's possible, but how likely?).

Where was Lasker during 1889? He was just starting out...

Yes, I'm skeptical - let's find the source for this game.

  MissScarlett: Well, you asked for it....<Samouchitel shakhmatnoi igry Schiffers game 364.> There's no problem with Lasker being in Berlin in 1889.
Jan-16-21  realdumptrump: No, but what about Polner? A poor academic in St. Petersburg traveling to Berlin for what reason?

Also -what the heck kind of ref is that? Is it Bronstein's book or Schiffers? Where's the worldcat link dude(tte).
