Though his infamous "Double Bishop Sacrifice" will live on forever, enough of the funny business pretending that Lasker won games by sacrificial means... He was a grinder, and one of the best at that! Today GM Dejan Bojkov reveals as much, displaying a critical victory over his predecessor Wilhelm Steinetz. Lasker's technique was flawless, and he didn't need much more than a slight edge in this interesting endgame. Enjoy this tight struggle to its bitter finish!
