There are 2 clues unsolved right now on the Holiday Contest Clues Page! Given times; par: Some people don’t like to know the result of the game in advance. I would rather White had Castled on the last move. It would have a hamburger move. It’s amazing to think that if this was pinball then White would have lost.
Chap walks into a London Chess Club. Sir George Thomas, ever the benign host, and president of the Club, always ready to welcome a potential new ajedrsz, strolls over and kindly offers to play a game. The rest is history, and today’s Game of the Day.
Thank you, Sir George and Mr Lasker! This has to be one of the most amusing and entertaining games ever played. I’d hate to be on the losing end in carnages like this. It’s defeats like this that create shattered nerves and devastated egos.
This is Ed Lasker and not wc Emmanuel Lasker right?

The position at the 10th move was in a book of checkmate exercises edited by Reinfeld. I suppose the pun has to do with Thomas’ king being drawn to his doom into Lasker’s territory. I’m a bit confused. I have a book on Dutch Defence by Neil McDonald and this game is on page 17 and the move order is very different like below: So which one is correct? Great pun, and nice game!
The pun is perfect! Lasker was a cousin of Emmanuel Lasker. What a fun game to see! The black king is marched to the scaffold. White ducks on castling with mate. Emmanuel Lasker was the chess player or, as he called himself on a tragic occasion, Schach Koenigand Edward was the chest player. Lasker chose to move the King to checkmate. Always felt it would have been even a more special game if he had chosen rooking to checkmate.
Too bad he showed such economy of effort that he chose to move the King as a single piece rather than castling, which requires moving two pieces thereby burning up 0. Video analysis of this game: Winter plays around with you in citing all the different versions, but let’s just cut to the chase: I found another contemporaneous versionunsurprisingly matching version 4: This game is a warning to anyone, like me, who likes the Dutch Defense.
