    This was a three minute game on chess.com just a few minutes ago. I think that is my shortest mate.

    Englund gambit, then a couple of sacs.

    All good fun Sony it looked like a typical The Snatcher v The Hacker game.
    My money is always on The Hacker.

    My most common mate at blitz is this, I get at least one a week.

    When I first started out I thought I'd invented this gambit until it was pointed out to me by a not so cordial opponent that it's been known for a hundred years. I had to laugh to myself that such a knowledgeable guy fell into the mate despite his unwanted history lesson 😀

    I know a fool's mate only takes two moves but how many players really get caught by that.
    This was one of my fastest and I was surprised that my opponent allowed this to happen.
    I had just lost our previous game badly and this was a grudge/rematch game.
    I have always wondered if they were just giving me a mercy "win", but they would never confirm that suspicion.
