  Domdaniel: Hyde, Bolus & Bodfish? Do any of you gentlemen care to use your real names? The constabulary need not be informed, unless of course you're winning...
Dec-13-07  MichAdams: Sounds like a law firm.

Dec-13-07  RookFile: You know, they didn't get a bad position out of the opening, that is, until that decided to go crazy, that is.

Nov-15-14  TheFocus: From a consultation simul in Birmingham, England on March 1, 1897.

Lasker scored +23=3-3.

Mar-07-16  rollingrook5: Bodfish evaluated the craziness beginning with Bxg4 as losing for Black, however, not much faith was placed in engines in those days :)

  HeMateMe: great pun. It's a shame Lasker was broke most of his life and probably died broke. He had greater longevity than anyone in chess, ever, except for perhaps Korchnoi. But, VK was never world champion.

Lasker was just born too early to cash in on his talents.

Mar-07-16  Cheapo by the Dozen: My grandmother told a story of encountering Lasker on vacation when she was a little girl. Her family had some money, so he was perhaps doing OK at the time too. I'm guessing 1910, give or take.

He played Muehle with her. :)

  An Englishman: Good Evening: I like how the amateurs played without fear, taking the battle to one of the best players ever. Of course the World Champion saw further than they did, but I'd wager he did not feel bored.

Wikipedia says (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emanu...) Lasker lost his money in World War I. Clearly, he wasn't doing too badly before the war, as he had the time to pursue intellectual interests such as math and philosophy.

  HeMateMe: that's not certain. Was his family wealthy? I don't really know his story. There's plenty of broke students out there.

He was a strong backgammon player, too, possibly cards as well. I would guess a young guy could hustle some money at cafes if you could do all of those things well.

  kevin86: Lasker walks off with this one.
Mar-07-16  RookFile: After 9 moves, Lasker says: "If all else fails, I'll win the endgame."

Actually, March 2, scoring +6 -0 =0.
