    Your Lasker v Thomas puzzle can be solved in two moves?

    knight takes bishop (check), then queen to h7 check mate

    Thought  you had something there for a moment  but after 11.Nxf6, capture the knight with the pawn & it opens the rank for the black queen to protect the h7 pawn !

    11. Nxf6+ Rxf6 ( 11... Qxf6 12. Qxh7# ) ( 11... gxf6 12. Qxh7+ )
    12. Qxh7+ Kf8 13. Qh8#

    But you're right, capture the (white) knight with the queen or rook & it's mate in 2 or 3 moves     Smile

    If 11.Nxf6+ then black can reply with 11...gxf6 and now white cannot mate with Qh7 because black's queen is protection h7.

    Note that this is why Thomas' 10th move was 10...Qd8e7. He foresaw your line. What he missed was that if you change the move order then the same idea now works!

    I now practice working out my moves, in my head, prior to moving a piece. This was a great exercise for the mind. I likes.
