why should you move pawn to h6, if you can simply capture the horse with rook?
Blocks Qh7 mate.
terrible, all the moves make no sense
I got a couple easily, but then it was really hard!
Once again, I couldn't see all the way to the end, but I could bet on Queen sacrifice being the correct first move. Interesting that the subsequent moves afterwards were pretty straightforward. I'll have to go back and check if I strongly considered other moves after the queen sac.
In a game, I'm pretty sure I would have started with a check by a knight
EDIT - Okay - I see - 1. Nxf6+ gxf6 - and now the black queen is guarding that critical h7 pawn. That line goes nowhere for white.
Too many ways to checkmate!
Did you look at 1. Ng5 g6?
Wouldn't Nxf6 be simpler? It wins a bishop and is one step closer to checkmate.
Or Ng5 covers h7 3 times.
it was gone even without castling
love it, love lasker

Why didn't he play 6. Be4#? The castle seems unnecessary.
6. Be4+ Bxe4
There's a fianchettoed bishop in the corner. ;)
[Translation mode = patzer]I don't understand this, it's too hard[/mode]
Lindo ... mate de cavalo
1. Nxf6 gxf6, at which point there is no mate and no gain of material.
1. Ng5 g6, likewise.
Both suffer the fatal flaw of allowing the black queen to protect h7, and go nowhere.
Evil nasty buggers, those are.
last post. woo hoo. this was an amazing problem. probably my favorite
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. That's what I tried to do as well. I like forcing Black's moves.
