    Ah the simple things that are missed in blitz.
    I guess I was expecting d7 or e8 for the knight
    and my sights were already set on h7!

    [Result "1/2-1/2"]

    1. Ng1-f3 d7-d5 2. c2-c4 d5-d4 3. e2-e4 {If black plays c5 or e5 I play d4 and have a reversed czech Benoni}
    d4xe3 4. f2xe3 e7-e6 5. d2-d4 c7-c6 6. Bf1-d3 Bf8-e7 7. O-O Ng8-f6 {black finally develops a piece - I'll shift it!}
    8. e3-e4 O-O 9. e4-e5 Nf6-h5 {That must be bad!}
    10. Bd3xh7 {the ...[text shortened]... 16. Qh5xf7 Kh7-h8 17. Qf7-f8 {draw agreed}
    1/2-1/2 [/pgn]

    OMG
    I cut the game and posted it immediately afterwards.
    I'll take my time if I do it again!

    That would be sweet too as it necessarily counters the check.

    Good eye Mr. TomTom. That move is absolutely devastating. Its so elegant and simple...without providing mate! What a test! - it belongs in a tactics manual.

    Where is the resident writer Mr. Pawn? He should be writing this down. This is a perfect inclusion in his tactics book. I'll buy a copy.

    Yes, I spotted it instantly because I missed such a move against a rival of mine... I couldn't live it down for months. I had even considered playing the move but hadn't realized it would come with discovered check so I quickly discarded it!

    a proper understanding of the pawn structure would have revealed this discovered
    check, instantly

    Then learn it quickly because if I have opponents that I know are unaware of the en-passant rule, I tend to exploit them!
