Lasker's Trap can be very powerful weapon for Black in Albin Counter gambit variation. The unusual though very powerful feature of Lasker Trap is underpromotion on seventh move. It is a good idea to use this opening in quick games since it is not very often played and your opponent most likely would be unprepared for it. Let's take a closer look:
White hopes to face "standardized" d4 opening lines such as 2...e6 or 2...c6 (Slav/Semi Slav) but, here the surprise comes: 2...e5. Black attacks the center directly offering a counter gambit for White's Queen's Gambit, called Albin Counter gambit. 3. dxe5 d4 4.e3?
