A Couple Lasker Games

May 2, 2009, 1:21 AM |

Here are 2 Lasker games I have played through the last couple days as I continue to work through Reti's Masters of the Chess Board.



This first game seems to be stored with different move orders depending on where you find it. I have uploaded the version that corresponds to Reti's book. In the end the game in Chessbase and this game are the same, with the difference being when Nc3 and Nf6 occur, and whether black plays Rad8 or Rfd8. (Edit: Actually this version also has Rad8, but the book has Rfd8 (KR-Q1))

This second game is a rather odd closed sicilian.
