    Can anyone give an example of game which started with Black copying White for a long time which Black eventually won?

    I'll play you as white. I'm pretty sure that we would end up with such a game.

    I remember playing mirror moves purely because it looked so pretty in one of my early games: Game 1085813
    But I chickened out quite early, so it probably doesn't fulfil your criteria.

    Here's one with seven mirrored moves which was eventually won by Black.

    Have seen a few Black opening traps being used by White when they
    deliberately lose a tempo. (usually with an early a3).

    Here is the Blackburne Shilling trap in reverse.



    I played myself once facing a mirror - Don't Do This
