Jan-13-07  Whitehat1963: 13. 0-0 or Bxf4 was necessary. But what do you expect when you're playing against A. Holy Man?

  MissScarlett: <From a simul at the Brooklyn Institute of Art and Science in New York, New York on November 4, 1911.

Lasker's score is not known.>

That's because Lasker didn't give a simul at the Institute on November 4th; he gave a lecture.

The confusion stems from Whyld's <The Collected Games of Emanuel Lasker>, p.157. He has <simul New York> and then <[Brooklyn Institute of Art + Science] [4 November]>. I believe the use of brackets signify these are conjectural. Whyld's source is the <Philadelphia Inquirer, 11-2-1917>.

That source states that <Emanuel Lasker [...] when in this country on his last visit lost the following fine game to Alex. [sic] H. Man, president of the Queens County Chess Club. The game has never been published, excepting once in the Brooklyn Eagle.>

The <BDE> of February 1st 1917, Sec.2 p.2 has < will be of interest to give the details of a short game which the world's champion played and lost on the occasion of his last visit to the Queens County Chess Club at Richmond Hill, L. I., and which hitherto has not seen the light of day. The game was played by Alrick H. Man, president of the Queens County Chess Club and one of the strongest of the Long Island players, who had kept a memorandum of the moves made and now contributes the score to this department.>

Capa did play a simul against the Queens County CC on November 14th 1911 (see Lasker vs G P Northrop, 1911) and Man was one of 25 opponents. However, Lasker scored +23 =2, and the list of his opponents that appear in the <BDE>, November 16th, Sporting sec. p.1, states Man lost.

So where does this game come from? I believe it's a casual game played between the two on the occasion of Lasker's visit to play his simul. One can't be sure, though, that it was played on the 14th itself, so I'll keep the date just as November.

Jul-23-17  TheFocus: <MissScarlett> Whyld should have had you on his research team.

Thank you for posting that.
