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).
i did it! :o
i did it in less than 5 mins....but with few incorrect moves too... :) but when i got that pawn move right it was pretty simple
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#).
That's the only thing I missed...i.e. i got it wrong from that.
