Jun-27-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: One of longest king hunts on record. The victim was mighty Lasker.
Oct-20-07  openingspecialist: That has to be one of the sharpest games ive ever seen. pure brilliance
Oct-21-07  whiteshark: What a game !!! I don't know which side one's bread is buttered on.
Oct-21-07  Calli: The story is very interesting. Shipley beat Lasker one-on-one a few days before Lasker vs W P Shipley, 1892 Lasker asked Shipley for his analysis of the Steinitz gambit and Shipley wrote it out for him. Lasker surprised Shipley by playing it again in this simul. This time Lasker played the right move, 11.Kd3, but still lost. Strong player, Mr. Shipley. In his prime, he had wins over all the world champions - Steinitz , Lasker and Capablanca.
Oct-21-07  Shams: <Calli> too bad, neither his victory over Stenitz nor the one over Capablanca are in the db.
Oct-21-07  Calli: <shams> Actually, I was wrong about the Capablanca win. Probably remembered this draw where 35...Ne4! and if 36.Rg1 Rxc3+ wins

Capablanca,J - Shipley,W [D00]

He may have won some unrecorded game as the two men were close friends who played a number of times.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: This Shipley gent played the Black pieces in the Steinitz Gambit twice, against Lasker and Steinitz himself. He walloped both of them. Yikes.
May-17-11  NARC: Is there any way White can sneak away with 8. Kd3 ... ? I am trying to quit playing the King's gambit and learn the Queen's gambit but I am still very nostalgic about the King's gambit.
Jun-06-12  Whitehat1963: Lasker makes a game out of it, but Shipley had all the answers ... AGAIN. There's no way I'd ever play this line as white, but Lasker loses to Shipley twice in the Opening of the Day. Shipley also beat Steinitz in this same opening.
Jun-06-12  DarthStapler: So much for the opening of the day...
