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.
That was pretty awesome JMSantos, well played.
The well known "Lasker Trap".
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.
