Lasker?ÿ - 2nd World Champion
Emanuel Lasker - A dashing young man with a passion for philosophy appeared on the global stage in 1894 to challenge the reigning World Chess Champion Wilhelm Steinitz. Emanuel Lasker, 25, faced the 58 year old Steinitz in a three city, grueling match, in which the first man to achieve 10 outright wins would wear the crown of World Chess Champion.
The first six games of the match were a head-to-head struggle, with each man winning two games and drawing two games.

Lasker became the 2nd World Champion in Montreal, with a score of ten games to five with four games drawn. He would retain the World Chess Championship title for a incredible record of 27 years.
