    Thought it would be interesting to see all the checkmates in under ten moves, since the the thread looking for mates under twenty is going so well.

    Just like with that other thread, post only if the game has mate in under ten moves, or if mate can be forced in under ten.

    I did that to an IM at ICC. It was a 1 minute game, and I had played a real move the first time around with white. He just premoved right into it. hehe

    You wouldn't believe how many people will take the black side of "Morphy at the Opera".

    I've sprung that trap so often I've lost track.

    Wow. I seriously need to remember this set up.

    A very odd game in the French defence. I'm not sure if black is better after the 9th move, but his 10th move made things a lot easier.

    I think I've posted this one on here before. My daughter (aged ten) was White:

    She took over a minute to play her fifth move because the urge to win her opponent's queen with 5. Nxf7 was so strong.

    1) Click on the game.

    2) Click on "Get PGN" to the right of the board.

    3) Copy the text.

    4) Past the text into your post

    5) put the PGN tags around the text of the game you copied, meaning put "pgn" and "/pgn" with brackets over them--->[]<---those things.


    I'll post your game in the meantime.
