  MissScarlett: Game appeared in <TBDE>, November 23rd, 1911, p.25.
Feb-08-17  LRamos: Til 9...Bg4 I only thought 10Be2 or the mistake 10 Ng5? In which line the knight in h8 would be lost, but the black bishop after capturing the white rook can retreat.

But 10 c4! Is an amazing move that threatens c5 attacking the bishop on d6, which is pinned in front of black king. And it forces b6 creating weak pawn structure in blacks queen side and also holes in a6 and c6.

Thanks for pointing this game out. If 14....Bxf3, then 15.gxf3 Nd4 (15....Nd8 16.Nb4 threatens 17.Rxd8) 16.Rxd4 exd4 17.Nb4 c6 18.Bf4+ and mates.

Janowski vs Lasker, 1910 may have given Engberg an exaggerated idea of the defense's merits. :-)
