    Just played a drawn game in 12 moves against mghrn55.

    Game 8762898

    Given that there is a thread on fast checkmates, are there other examples of drawn games in under 15/20 moves?

    Don't even think about a thread of 15 move draws.

    and here...

    Instead of 10...Nf6? what about 10....0-0-0!

    There is still loads of chess in there.

    ^^ that's what i thought ^^

    I looked through my games, quite a few draws after 20 odd moves but only one that i consider forced after 24 moves.

    Hi Trev, the opening of that game reminds me of this classic.

    I think that was a classic case of playing the person, not the board. I was wary of my opponent, and was happy with a drawn outcome in a clan challenge, so I didn't look past the immediate danger to my Bishop and Knight.
    Oh well, live and learn...

    Am I missing something or is 17. Qxe6+ perfectly winning?

    You appear to be correct Range Blaster

    This is fun. Two out of the three posted games still have tricks in them.
    Maybe we should do a thread on 15 move draws.

    The more I look at this game the more it makes my teeth hurt.

    As the French would say when holding their temper, "Punaise"

    Here's my version of this. Its a well-known Scotch variation. White was a fairly strong player and it looked other black variations were risky, so I chickened out
