May-11-14  offramp: Yes, <Goldenbear>, a really good game. I think Lasker had a lot of it worked out, even though it looks hair-raising.

He plays 15...♗e6:a2

I think it is possible that he saw the next few moves during which Ettlinger wins a pawn. White's queen is chased to b1 and the black rooks take up perfect positions after 19...♖e8-b8

That looks like a won position for black to me.

After 27...♘f6-e5 it is obvious that white will not last long.

  kingscrusher: There is some real tactical genius here allowing combinations of the opponent just to get positions that have terrific piece activity compensation for the material.
