how about white plays Rc7, either black Q or R blocks next will be taken out by the white R, and white Q takes black's g7 pawn and mate?
If 1. Rd7 then 1...Qc1+ 2. Rd1 Qxd1#.
took me a while to find, good puzzlelooking at this again, the game wouldn't be over for black with Qc3, Bb6 could change alot
After Bb6 ( or Bd4, both of which saves the checkmate threat) Qxf3 and white has a pawn and a rook for a bishop..... the material advantage and the passed e pawn is enough to decide the game.
In the Lasker puzzle.....I am very disappointed with the finish.... Kd2???I tried 0-0-0 and the puzle said wrong move :(0-0-0# is much more elegant....
One of my favorite chess puzzles. Try solving it all the way through before playing the first move. (It's more satisfying that way!)

I didn't mention chess in my answer, but to be fully honest, I think chess did play a role. Chess taught me that there is a lot that I do not know and consequently made me more open to considering new ideas. Feel free to discuss this meme here.
18. O-O-O# works too.
