White to move and mate in 7! (Edward Lasker vs. George Thomas, City of London Chess Club, 1912)

“The following game I consider the most beautiful I ever played  … though it was not a tournament game and can, therefore, hardly be classed among the best games.” – Edward Lasker

“A year later, Alekhine called my attention to the fact, discovered in Moscow, where he went over the game with Bernstein, that I could have mated in seven instead of eight moves by playing 16 Kf1 or O-O, as then Black would have been unable to prevent mate by 17 Nh2.”– Edward Lasker
