Feb-05-18  RookFile: Lasker was just waiting for his opponent in this simul to make a mistake. It's a way to win. The problem is, he didn't.

This and the other Washington simul games (vs. Stephenson, Wootton, Sournin, Knapp) were played on the 21st. See the Washington <Evening Star>, April 22nd 1910, p.22. Whyld, apparently, was misled by the <ACB>, 1910, p.140.
