    Why not e4-f6+? Please someone tell me why? Black has to take with the queen or rook;  then white Q to h7..

     Black can take the knight with the pawn at g7.  Qh7+ first forces Kxh7, then Nf6+ puts the king in check from the bishop at d3 as well as the knight, forcing the king to move.

    Instead of 0-0 there's also Be2+ Kg2, Rh2+ Kg1 and Kd2#.  A move slower but still works.

    The original game went on like this : (which I think is way better)

    6. Be2 Kg2

    7. Rh2 Kg1

    8. Kd2(O-O-O)#

    One of the masterpieces of Lasker.


    Agreed!  Lasker created a thing of beauty.

    I just happened to be looking at this game yesterday! What a coincidence. Anyway, white can force mate just as quick with 6. Kf1 as opposed to 6. O-O.

    Also, in the real game, surely it was more artistic for Lasker to mate with O-O-O... :D

    Good one...

    But on the 6th move, wouldn't checking black with the bishop on e4 be checkmate?
