Steinitz's Immortal Game

Steinitz - von Bardeleben, Hastings 1895
White to play and win

Admittedly, Hastings 1895 doesn't have much to do with Chicago.  But hey, very cool notes by Kavalek!

Not to worry - almost all of my posts don't have much to do with Chicago! But there is an (admittedly very slight) connection between Hastings 1895 and Chicago. Emanuel Lasker, who had been crowned World Champion the year before, played at Hastings 1895. Today, Erik Karklins, one of only two known living persons who played Lasker, lives in Chicago! (The other, Melvin Chernev - Irving's son - lives near San Francisco.)
