As far as I can see, Lasker overextended himself with a premature a4 and e4.
Promotion takes patience too.

But then again, Lasker is quite the attacking player looking for false
attacks, waiting until Steinitz makes a mistake.
For example: 15... Sf4 or 20... Lh3 (attacking the knight on h3 indirectly)
so pushing the pawns forward too eager does fits he play style.

And maybe Lasker made a mistake in his usage of time and ran out, as you can
see that he clearly had the advantage early in the game. (up to 42... a4,
53... e4 just concluded it).


I will leave it to others to discuss the details, as in why 7.dxe5, 11.Lxf6,
20... Lh3, etc.

Best regards,
Fernando
