So easy, took me 15 minutes to see the first move and two to see the second.

Yes, quite right - although because it's Black that's doing the mating for a change, the board is 'flipped' & all the squares are inverted.

So it should really be:   1... Qh4+ 2. g3 Qxg3#

This also works:  1... Qh4+ 2. Kf3 Qg3#

But if White plays the longest game possible, then it's mate in 4 moves.

Today's regular puzzle was another bad joke - just another Sunday echo.

HOWEVER - many thanks to peacerequiresanarchy for forwarding that incredible Lasker vs Thomas game. Incredible stuff, Lasker was a very perceptive dude.
