Lasker, Berthold

Berthold Lasker (1860-1928) was the older brother of Emanuel Lasker who taught Emanuel how to play when Emanuel was 11 years old.  He was known as a chess hustler in Berlin in the early 1880s.  As a medical doctor who lived in Berlin, he saved Emanuel Lasker’s life in 1894 when Emanuel Lasker had gastric fever and a broken blood vessel while living in England.  Berthold married Else Schuler (1869-1945), a famous poet, writer, and artist, in 1894.  She later divorced him in 1903.   In 1902 he won the New York State chess championship.
