Lesson: The Lasker Trap
The Lasker Trap
Here is a lesson on the lasker trap. One of my favourite traps and one of the first that I learned. It comes from the albin countergambit.
Here is how Stockfish would play against itself. It takes a while for it to win but remember that this is played perfectly by both sides, in real life white will make more mistakes than black. Funny thing that it found a mate in 18 I wish I could see something like that sometime.
The engine was Stockfish 7 with a depth of 25 moves.
