May-11-11  TheFocus: This was not a simultaneous game. It was part of an exhibition match series against members of the Manhattan Chess Club. Lasker won 2-1 against Simonson.
May-24-12  blazerdoodle: For one moment it seemed like black had all those extra pawns for the piece, but they Lasker seemed to paw his positon to mush.

  Calli: 20...Ne5 saves the piece because if 21.Rxg7? then Qa1+ picks up the h1 rook.

  offramp: Simonson may have rejected 20...Ne5 owing to 21.Rxg7, but then white wins with 21...Qa1+.
