    and here, of course, is the 4 move mate that we have all fallen for at least once.

    My last time (losing) was 42 years ago and I beat my daughter this way only last year.

    the two-move mate is the only two-move mate. the four move mate . . oh yes! i fell for that so many times!!!! it's really sweet to get that one once in a while. i only got the two-move mate a couple of times.

    Hard to believe thats for real but I guess we all get careless and over confident against "inferior" opposition from time to time but being 1900 and mated in 3 moves is quite something.

    I can't understand why he lost Game 3308378 in 4 moves in a similar way against the same opponent.

    Either this was a deliberate loss or he has improved from beginner to a strong club player in an incredibly short time.
