Ofcourse, I can not deny the learning value of this beautiful set of forced moves of the minor pieces that also leads to mate.

Perhaps Lasker decided to display academic chess by choosing this alternative in a match setting than having to point this alternative mate as a comment after the game.




I can't see your two move mate after Pxf6?

As Lasker points out in his book, "Chess for Fun and Chess for Blood," he actually missed a quicker mate with 14 f4+, viz., 14 ... Kh4 15 g3+ Kh3 16 Bf1+ Bg2 17 Kf2 mate! By the way, this is EDWARD Lasker, not Emanuel. 😊

I think 18.0-0-0 would have been more remarkable!!

This is one of the most amazing King Hunts of all time, as Lasker drags his opponents King from the safety of his own back rank, right to the perils at the other end.
Because of the 7 move forced mate this game is often subject to inclusion in many puzzle books and is included in the puzzle section here at Chessworld.

[[[1.d4 f5 2.e4 fxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 e6 5.Nxe4 Be7 6.Bxf6 Bxf6 7.Nf3 O-O 8.Bd3 b6 9.Ne5 Bb7 10.Qh5 Qe7 11.Qxh7+ Kxh7 12.Nxf6+ Kh6 13.Neg4+ Kg5 14.h4+ Kf4 15.g3+ Kf3 16.Be2+ Kg2 17.Rh2+ Kg1 18.Kd2+ 1-0]]]
