Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-10-14  Karpova: Dr. Emanuel Lasker's annotations condensed:

6...0-0 <Suggesting ...Ne4 instead, else the ♗ move to b4 is wasted.>

10...Nf8 <Suggesting ...Qb6. Now Black gets into serious difficulties.>

13...Qb6 <Black notices that he can get rid of the pin to the ♘f6 only very difficulty and so he decides to go for a daredevil hazard.>

15.Nh5 <The complications begin. The strongest was 15.Nxf7 Kxf7 16.Qh5 Kg7 17.f5 with a winning position.>

20.Rb1 <? White should have continued the attack with 20.Qg3+ Ng6 21.Raf1.>

20...Nxd3 <!>

21...Bg5 <! If now 22.Qxg5+ Kh8 23.Rff1 Nf2+ 24.Kg1 Ne4 and wins.>

24...Qd2 <Suggesting ...Qe5 instead. Now Black gets into greatest danger again.>

28.Nxg5 <? Of course, White should have continued 28.f6 to threaten Qf8+. From now on, the game calms down.>
