New York 1924, Round 22: Live

5/25/2020 – Today, the last round of the New York 1924 will be played. Dr. Emanuel Lasker leads with 15.0/19 and is certain to win the tournament because he is 1½ ahead of Capablanca who is certain to finish second. However, as each player receives extra money for a win a peaceful last round is unlikely. All rounds begin at 15:00 UK (16:00 CEST, 09:00 EST). | The photo shows the eleven participants. Seated (from left to right): F. Yates, J.R. Capablanca, D. Janowsky, Edward Lasker, Emanuel Lasker. Standing (from left to right): F. Marshall, S. Tartakower, G. Maroczy, A. Alekhine, R. Reti, E. Bogoljubow

That's a good idea. Captions identifying the players on the photo were added.
@MrPickl3 @John S Givler The E. Lasker who is playing against Maroczy in the first round is indeed Edward Lasker. Emanuel Lasker had a bye in the first round.

Speaking of "Lasker,E", the elo seems way off for Emanuel Lasker. He was more like 2750 in 1924 and no where near 2550.

Calling a player "Lasker,E" is not sufficient when there are two players matching that description!

Why not caption the photo to identify the players?
