Jan-03-09  WhiteRook48: even Lasker couldn't keep his opponent from winning
Jan-10-09  WhiteRook48: I'm thinking maybe 68. c8=B also wins:
68. c8=B Ka8 69. a6 Ka7 70. Bb7...

  whiteshark: Lasker overdraw his position. <39...Bg7> and move repetition would have been appropriate.
May-11-11  TheFocus: This was not a simultaneous game. It was part of an exhibition match series against members of the Manhattan Chess Club. Lasker won 2-1 against Simonson.

  GrahamClayton: Here is an interesting story about a literary hoax that involved Simonson:

  Phony Benoni: Promoting to a bishop also wins, but would only have been worth doing a few years later when Lasker was world champion. Why waste it on an ordinary master?

If Lasker had been in his prime, White would have promoted to a knight and added to the legend of Lasker's ability to escape lost positions.

Nov-09-14  TheFocus: This is Match Game 3 from a series of matches played against members of the Manhattan Chess Club.

This game was played on November 1, 1892.
