    Lucky Day For Me
    3 Minute Game ... Just Completed

    After some horrible play by me, I managed to get this position with white:

    This is one time where the best move in the position may actually be resigns.
    For some reason, I thought I got two minor pieces for the queen, not realizing that I had already sacked one.

    By pure luck (or miracle), I turned it into this:

    Black has just played Qf1??, and now white mates by force.
    To be fair, both sides were in extreme time trouble.
    I didn't even see the mate at first, repeating the position.

    For completists, here is the game, but be warned: it is bad!

    Here we have it again. I'm down material, I go for at least a perpetual in severe time trouble, and in the end, a nice mate pops up. That's twice in this thread that this has happened!
