    In regards to the 2nd move being tricky the following story gives an idea of how tricky it was
    In 1925 BCM(British Chess Magazine) had the problem plus the story about Lasker and Tarrasch and received letters from solvers about how 'easy' it was and that the Tarrasch and Lasker story must be a joke. BCM responded by publishing the letters from the solvers alongside the real solution!
