   May-05-22 Lasker vs W N Paton, 1899
SymphonicKnight: This game was drawn prematurely as Paton had a winning position in the end against Lasker. 41.Kd3? (41.Ba3!) b2 42.Kc2 Nd4+ 43.Kxb2 Nxf5 44.Bc7 (44.g4 Nxd6 45.exd6 Kf8) ...Nxg3 and Lasker could resign.
   Apr-19-22 Lasker vs Chigorin, 1903
SymphonicKnight: Apologies, I meant If 30.Nd8+ first
   Apr-19-22 Lasker vs Chigorin, 1903
SymphonicKnight: Playing the Rice Gambit is like taking a 200 point rating handicap by white according to both human practice and computer analysis. It was actually an accomplishment by Lasker to get 2.5/6 against a player of Chigorin's class playing only white.
   Feb-08-22 Nepomniachtchi vs A Volodin, 2006
SymphonicKnight: A game featured in puzzles, which shows some of Nepomniachtchi's tactical flair, even at the age of 15 and rated 2506 when this game was played.
   Jan-11-22 Steinitz - Zukertort World Championship Match (1886) (replies)
SymphonicKnight: For a phenomenal article that has merged commentary by Steinitz (International) and Zukertort (Monthly) with commentary by other contemporary top players and much exemplary detail filled in by newpaper articles, enjoy here: Research is
   Jan-08-22 Anton Korobov
SymphonicKnight: It was incorrectly reported that Korobov won the Sunway Sitges Tournament, but Korobov was 5th after the playoffs, and the winner was Abdusattorov. Kollars was 2nd, Puranik was 3rd, Cheparinov 4th. The standings before the playoffs are here ...
   Jan-08-22 Bogoljubov vs Spielmann, 1919
SymphonicKnight: According to Lasker's Manual of Chess, "The following game was played to analyse the Opening of a match-game which Bogoljubov had essayed against Spielmann in 1919 at Stockholm." Lasker then goes on to say that this analysis was played by an Amateur, rather than by ...
   Jan-07-22 Zukertort vs Blackburne, 1883 (replies)
SymphonicKnight: Zukertort's Immortal with one of the best deflection sacrifices ever made. A vital game to have seen for the ideas presented, and worthy of reflection.
   Jan-06-22 J W te Kolste vs Reti, 1925
SymphonicKnight: Emanuel Lasker truly took exception to premature claims of automatic wins even with best play. His greatest legacy, The Principle of Proportion, the heading of this coverage in Lasker's Manual of Chess, wherein he refers specifically to his own contributions, is really a ...
   Jan-03-22 Steinitz vs A Mongredien, 1862
SymphonicKnight: A brilliancy prize winner that was considered one of the most brilliant of all time. An engine reveals marvelous secrets within this amazing game. Very Steinitzian was 10.f4, very unStockfishy, which prefers 10.Qe2 and an entirely diifferent flavor. This is fun and full of ...
