    Finally, my first Lasker trap! After 4.e3 white are doomed...

    Very nice trap. What was the time control?

    It was a online game, 3 days for each move.

    I like specially the move 7 ...fxg1=N+!! With that move black keep the initiative and can go after the queen. If I promote to any other piece then a knight, white plays 8. Qxd8+ and after ...Kxd8 9. Rxg1 and all advantage for black is gone.

    Looks somewhat similar to the common Englund Gambit trap:

    white played very poorly specially taking into account this was an online game with 3 days per each move and not a blitz game.

    8.Ke1 was the only chance.black still had to be careful to convert his advantage.
