  Retireborn: Breyer's 30...c4 possibly isn't the best (Houdini likes 30...Kxe5) but it induces a mistake from Lasker, who should have replied 31.Ne2 (the passed pawn is a criminal etc).

Then Breyer misses his chance with 32...c3 33.Rc7 c2 & 34...Bc4!

The rest of the game is fun to play over and as far as I can tell they both played perfectly.

Sep-20-19  JimNorCal: This is the only game Breyer drew in this tournament. He was +7, -5 in the other games.

  Retireborn: <JimNorCal> That's interesting. Looking at the crosstable there were very few draws in this tournament!
Sep-21-19  JimNorCal: The book "Chess Secrets" has a detailed and entertaining account of the tourney from the viewpoint of participant Ed Lasker.
