The importance of CCT: example #4 - Lasker's Manual of Chess

Continuing the series on Checks, Captures and Threats (CCT) is the following excerpt from Lasker's Manual of Chess ("21st Century Edition", Russell Enterprises) found in the Third Book: The Combination.
"The consideration of forcible moves is necessary because in this way a short road to victory, provided it is on the board, can be discerned.  The method is also practical because it eliminates all consideration of the immense multitude of nonviolent moves and concentrates the attention upon a few possibilities which the human mind can easily digest."
