I like the trappy playing style of Dr. Emanuel Lasker (shown in the picture/avatar), the 2nd official world champion.
Though my playing strength falls far short, I cannot resist setting a trap if I see the scope of one!
Next I like and try to adapt the style of Mikhail Tal, the 8th World Champion, when I find the wind blowing the opposite way!
Some of Lasker's classic games are given below
"double bishop sac"/ "Lasker Sacrifice"
Here is another saccy game by Emanuel Lasker (with opponent no less than Pillsbury!):
Here is a game against the first official world champion - Steinitz, no less!
"knight and bishop sac"
Here is a profound game against Max Euwe featuring Lasker's Queen Sacrifice! The depth of the combination is mind-boggling, and the combination can be understood only by a masters level player!
"Lasker's Queen Sac"

There is yet another Lasker - Edward Lasker - who is not less talented in anyway! Here is the Immortal "King Walk" Game of Edward Lasker (my hidden passion is to play something like this at least once in my life!):
Edward Lasker's "The King-Walk Game"
THE Immortal Game! Could not resist including it here (Annotations by Huebner and from Wiki):
Anderssen's "THE Immortal Game"
I found this all-pieces-sacced game by chess.com's popular author GM Grigory Serper, published by IM MacMolner in his article http://www.chess.com/blog/MacMolner/every-piece-sacrificed and also in http://www.chess.com/article/view/my-personal-mona-lisa . I could not resist adding it here, as I consider it another immortal game! The beauty of this game is - White sacs ALL his pieces to win! Yet black makes no blunder, white makes no rash or dubious move! Most of the annotations is by IM MacMolner, some added by me for us lesser players.
