[Event "Brighton"] [Site "?"] [Round "0"] [White "Lasker"] [Black "Chigorin"] [Result "0-1"] [ECO "C39"] [Opening "KGA: 3.Nf3 g5 4.h4"] 1. e4 e5 2. f4 exf4 3. Nf3 g5 4. h4 g4 5. Ne5 Nf6 6. Bc4 d5 7. exd5 Bd6 8. O-O {The Rice Gambit. White hopes to get an attack on the open e- file based on the pin he gets there after 8...Bxe5 9 Re1.} 8... Bxe5 9. Re1 Qe7 10. c3 { White can't play 10 d4.} 10... f3 { Black gives back some material to open up White's king positon.} 11. d4 Ne4 { Threatening 12...f2+ or 12...Qxh4.} 12. Rxe4 Bh2+ 13. Kxh2 Qxe4 {White has got some of his material back, but his king is exposed and Black's will be safe on g8.} 14. g3 O-O 15. Bf4 c6 16. Nd2 Qg6 17. Qe1 Bf5 18. Qe7 Nd7 { Preparing to invade White's position by Rae8 and Re2+.} 19. Re1 cxd5 { An important move in Black's plan. If White doesn't capture, Black will have the e4 square to invade on.} 20. Bxd5 Nf6 { Because of Black's last move this gains a tempo. Now Black is ready for Rae8.} 21. Qxb7 Rae8 22. Rxe8 Rxe8 23. Be5 Bc8 { Getting out of the queen's way and deflecting White's queen from f7.} 24. Qc6 Qc2 {So it is the queen and not the rook that invades the seventh rank. It doesn't matter.} 25. Bxf7+ Kf8 {Now after 26 Bd6+ Kg7 White has run out of checks and 27 Bf4 Re2+ will mate him. The same happens after 26 Qd6+ Re7 27 Qd8+ Kxf7.} 0-1
