    I have only been able to find 4 of my games that went all the way to a checkmate. I could have missed one or two, but none of them have ever appeared on the home page of RHP.

    I think the following game has an unusual mate and is worth taking a look at.



    This was the 44th game I completed on RHP.

    Beautiful game. I love king hunts, even though this one was brief.

    That is one of my few complaints about the game, I wish king hunts were more common, especially ones where the king is driven all around the board.

    Yeah, I remember seeing one of Paul Morphy's games where he was playing white without his queen rook and he drove the opponents king down to the first rank and mated him by castling. Did you see that game?

    P.S. Here is a YouTube link to someone going over that game:

    That's a harsh thing to do to a family member.
