[Event "Hastings"] [Site "?"] [Round "0"] [White "Lasker"] [Black "Tinsley"] [Result "1-0"] [ECO "C10"] [Opening "French: Rubinstein, 4...Nf6"] 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 dxe4 4. Nxe4 Nf6 5. Bd3 Be7 6. Nf3 Nbd7 7. O-O O-O 8. c3 b6 9. Qe2 Bb7 10. Rd1 Re8 11. c4 a5 12. Nc3 Qc8 13. Bf4 Bd6 14. Be5 { This is a very important move. White occupies the critical central square at e5 and places pressure on the kingside, since the Nf6 is under attack.} 14... Bxf3 {Black played this move because he realized that White would lose a pawn at e5 if he recaptured with the queen.} 15. gxf3 Bxe5 16. dxe5 Nh5 {But now the knight is stranded at the edge of the board. If it can get to the f4-square, then it can retreat to g6 and the pawn at e5 will be threatened. But White sees that the Nd7 lacks support and unleashes a combination.} 17. Bxh7+ { If Black captures the bishop, then Qd3+ wins the knight at d7, and White emerges with an extra pawn and control of the seventh rank.} 17... Kh8 18. Be4 c6 19. f4 {Another strong move. The pawn is returned so that the queen can enter the kingside.} 19... Nxf4 20. Qd2 Nh3+ 21. Kh1 g5 { A desperate move, but how else could the invasion of the queen be stopped?} 22. Bg2 Nxe5 {22...Nf4 23.Ne4 Now Nd6 is a nasty threat.} 23. Bxh3 f6 24. f4 Nf7 { 24...gxf4 25.Qxf4 Kg7 26.Rg1+ Kf7 27.Raf1 Nd7 28.Ne4} 25. Ne4 g4 26. Bxg4 f5 { With this fork Black attacks two White pieces, but opens up a criticaldiagonal. } 27. Qc3+ {Black resigned.} 1-0
