Sorry, how does "irregularity" differ from infringement?

Infringement is the breaking of a law or condition etc.
Irregularity is acting in an irregular manner.

Presumably this is a chess author's Mock-Gothic-Horror moment - recreating the popular Hammer Horror films' misconception that Dracula, the vampire, was despatched from the world by a wooden stake being driven through his heart with the use of a hammer. (That's not the case in the original 1897 novel, Dracula, written by Bram Stoker.)

I presume you mean "quiet" but still not sure what a "time line" is in that context.

Please can we see the context - "time line" means the sequence in which things happen ... ideally at which time (which move?) - "line" has the sense of an axis - not a (chess) variation

"His bearing was sturdy" means his stance was strong or stable - it would be relatively difficult to knock over someone with a sturdy bearing

Sorry, "tame line".
Lasker was never a master of opening theory, which explains the tame line he chooses here.

It would be a very similar meaning if you substituted "quiet line" for "tame line".
