    Extremely difficult but beautiful mating net. This has got to be one of my all time favorite games. If you can solve it, I have nearly limitless respect for you.

    I tried 0-0-0 at the end :(

    0-0-0 is so much more awesome than Kd2 and I definately would've played it if it were me but alas, I am not Edward Lasker (I wish).

    Chess tips : kill the king in your base.

    And another thing. Lasker is inaccurate because he can mate in 7

    by 6.Kf1 (any moves) 7.Nh2# is better

    Edited : From Nb2# to Nh2# :)

    I assume you mean 7. Nh2#. And yeah that may be a quicker mate, but you must admit that the way Lasker did it was more asthetically pleasing. If I was playing this game and I saw both mates, I'd play the one he did just because it looks cooler (although I would've played 8. 0-0-0#).
