    At move 10, his rook went to the worse square possible. Necessary was R-f2.

    His 1300 to my 1700 would say I should win but not this fast!

    "Mate in 13" usually means a forced mate in 13.

    I think he means if WHite had not played 13.fxe4 then
    there is no mate in one.after 13,Kd2,

    He would have still been screwed, I take pawn with bishop, attacking rook , he moves rook to attack my queen and after I move queen out of attack, he has the choice to not take, putting me a piece up or take bishop and I take back with knight forking king and queen. so it was a lost position regardless of what he does.

    Well, he mishandled the opening. In the space of a few moves he buried his light squared bishop, moved his knight that was defending f3 and castled into your attack. I think had you played 1. ... d5 or 1. ... Nf6 he'd have been on more familiar territory and not botched it, or at least not so quickly. Well played.

    He needs to take a look at the Egmund Gambit if he wants to play 1.d4. It can mess you up in a hurry if you are caught off guard.

    I lost fast once, got mad, looked it up. Now no problem to get into a middle game in decent shape.
