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

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
