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

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

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!

Ah yes, thanks I missed that one. A very nice check mate anyway, twisted and tedious, it must have been enjoyable
