Mar-24-13  waustad: I'd have thought something about Rumboll of the Bailey might have been a good one. Actually I didn't know that Leo McKern was Australian until checking on stuff for this comment. He was thoroughly amusing in that role.
Mar-24-13  vinidivici: Good GOTD by Lasker.

Hope this will follow!

Lasker vs Ed Lasker, 1924

Mar-24-13  nolanryan: that's a beautiful finish
Mar-24-13  BlackSheep: Nice finish there , move 33 seemed like a good wed/thurs POTD .
Mar-24-13  Abdel Irada: Vintage Lasker: 16. Nf1d2, g5 17. Nf1. After such vacillation, one would expect him to lose, but as usual his positional understanding was deeper than that of his opponent.

Later, it may be that a similar retreat would have offered Black better defensive chances: 28. ...Nc8 in lieu of 28. ...Bc8. But after the text, Black is more or less stuck with the suicidal 30. ...a6?, after which Black's defenses disappear faster than a Christmas rum ball.

Mar-24-13  morfishine: Nice pun, nice finish
Mar-24-13  shakespeare: Black plays several strange time wasting moves like 14.Re8 (Rg8!) or 15 Na5??? - then he tries an half hearted attack looses the advantege and the initiative to Lasker, who used his chance to finish him off masterfully though with a lot of help by his opponent 28.Bc8 (removing deliberately a defender) 29. placing the king perfectly to get attacked
Mar-24-13  TheFocus: I submitted this game only five days ago, and already it's GOTD!

Someone on the admin staff has a good eye out for a good game.

Mar-24-13  joe1137: King is in jail. Rumboll in the Old Bailey
Mar-24-13  wachter123680: I mean with Lasker's 3. Bd3, which plates the good light square bish right in the center, crowned in glory, Lasker has practically announced that his bishop will be tantamount thrait to black's king. Of course if Rumboll read this calculated thrait, and decided to wait, subdued, while the bishop ascended to ultimate mating power in 37. Bd6!!2?/
Mar-24-13  wachter123680: It was all over at 37. Bd6, the powerful bishop, which Lasker had obviously keep well protected up to that point, was the penultimate thorn in Rumboll's side, advancing to power however late. while the f1 knight regarded cooly from a dist.
Mar-24-13  wachter123680: in line w my first post, in 19.Bxe4 the good light square bishop sacrifices himself humbly to wardice the meddling attempt of Rumboll to permeate through Ne4.
