critical position by Emanuel Lasker in which White playing first wins,

This is the position:









Let's see how white wins,

 

Now the winning & super move for white did you find?

 

11...Only move Rxh2 11...Rxc7 is not possible because of the pin.

Black, expect at the last, cannot play his King on the B file on account of Kb7, winning the Rook for Pawn. black Pawn may be anywhere at the seventh rank, on the King side, with White Rook behind it, and White can win in a similar way.
