Jan-10-06  patzer2: Lasker wins an instructive and amusing King and Pawn endgame.

Jan-11-06  morpstau: Wow indeed Lasker knew the endgame. I love watching his games. Hey Patzer2 or DCP23 was he ever world champion of his country or was he to old before they had those set matches? any feedback?
Jan-11-06  blingice: First of all, <morphstau> you can't be "world champion of his country" as you said. He was a 27 year long World Champ, as indicated in his profile: Emanuel Lasker .
Oct-05-06  Tenderfoot: Man, Blingice pawned him!!
Oct-05-06  Bob726: whats wrong with 47. kb3? sure black can extend the game with a1=N+ but after kc3 white still wins
Oct-05-06  Tenderfoot: I agree, that probably would've been a bit faster.
May-31-07  micartouse: The pawn ending after 24 ... Kxf7 is a stark example of the power of an outside passed pawn. White wins by force. I figured based on Black's slightly nicer Q-side pawns and king position that he could at least find a draw.

It took my Fritz about 7 minutes to even recognize White has an advantage here. Lasker properly assessed this pawn ending as a win.

Nothing, but there is nothing wrong with 47. Kc3 either. I suspect Lasker was having a little bit of fun with his opponent, who must have experienced at least a momentary thrill when he saw he could queen with check.

Nov-22-14  TheFocus: This was from a consultation simul against Bobrov, Grigoriev and Goncharev in Moscow, Russia on February 12, 1899.

Lasker scored +10=2-1.

  Stonehenge: <During the tour, Lasker, in addition to sessions with the participation of 25-35 chess players, as a rule, conducted consulting games. Sometimes he even played simultaneously against two groups of consultants. So it was in Moscow on February 13, 1899. In the first of these games, Grigoriev, Bobrov, Goncharov and Nenarokov played against him with blacks at one board, and Falk, Boyarkov and Blumenfeld played after the other with white ones. Lasker won the first of them on move 48, the second on move 20.>
