[Event "New York blindfold"] [Site "?"] [Round "0"] [White "Lasker"] [Black "Unknown"] [Result "1-0"] [ECO "C64"] [Opening "Spanish: Classical, 4.c3"] 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 Bc5 4. c3 d6 {This is a mistake, moving into a pin on his own knight when White can attack it further with tempo.} 5. d4 exd4 6. cxd4 Bb4+ 7. Kf1 {The bishop is exposed on b4, so White doesn't want Black to trade it off. Black should now cut his losses with 7...a6, though White still wins material.} 7... Bd7 8. Qa4 Qe7 9. d5 Qxe4 10. Nc3 Qe7 11. Bg5 {The bishop and knight won't run away, so White continues to win time by attacking Black's queen.} 11... Nf6 12. Re1 {Now Black's queen is pinned as well.} 12... Ne5 { Now both knights are pinned and Black can hardly move anything.} 13. Qxb4 O-O-O 14. Rxe5 {Taking advantage of the new pin on the d6 pawn.} 14... Bxb5+ 15. Nxb5 Qd7 16. Nxa7+ Kb8 { Now the b-pawn is pinned so White take advantage of that too.} 17. Re7 1-0
