    Your Lasker v Thomas puzzle can be solved in two moves?

    knight takes bishop (check), then queen to h7 check mate

    If 11.Nxf6+ then black can reply with 11...gxf6 and now white cannot mate with Qh7 because black's queen is protection h7.

    Note that this is why Thomas' 10th move was 10...Qd8e7. He foresaw your line. What he missed was that if you change the move order then the same idea now works!

    Ah yes, thanks I missed that one. A very nice check mate anyway, twisted and tedious, it must have been enjoyable

    Yes, quite right - although because it's Black that's doing the mating for a change, the board is 'flipped' & all the squares are inverted.

    So it should really be:   1... Qh4+ 2. g3 Qxg3#

    This also works:  1... Qh4+ 2. Kf3 Qg3#

    But if White plays the longest game possible, then it's mate in 4 moves.

    Today's regular puzzle was another bad joke - just another Sunday echo.

    HOWEVER - many thanks to peacerequiresanarchy for forwarding that incredible Lasker vs Thomas game. Incredible stuff, Lasker was a very perceptive dude.
