    That's right not checkmate, white resigned, so a 2 move win. In both games mentioned here white moves the F pawn forward,there is the mistake.

    A bit off topic but have you ever heard the song Bramble and the Rose? I heard it sung by my friends, Mary McCastlin and Jim Ringer. He is RIP now.

    Moving the f-pawn forward is not always a mistake for white. It’s the signature move in the King’s Gambit, my favorite opening as white
