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.


This is going to be very difficult for white to defend and for black it's pretty easy to win.

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 Cool I wish I could see something like that sometime.


The engine was Stockfish 7 with a depth of 25 moves.
