@PeaceRequiresAnarchy (first poster) I don't get the puzzle you posted.... didn't look like checkmate??

I also saw a way for white to checkmate his opponent quite early in the game...... I'm confused about it.

Cool daily puzzle though, as usual :)

Another puzzle for those who want something more challenging. Try solving it all the way through before playing the first move (if you don't do that already). It's more satisfying that way.
 

Judit Polgar reviewed that game in one of her video lessons. She recommended 18. 0-0-0# more amazing I personally think

The Lasker - Thomas game?  How is 18.  O-O-O# any more amazing than 18. Kd2#?  They're both moving the king out of the way of the rook to deliver mate on the 1st rank.
