    I bet he was just trying to take the bishop. I remember many surprise checkmates at that level.

    You should do a column on help-mates, GP.

    Not only a surprise ending; a weird and wacky game altogether.

    Yes, I too would like to see a blog on players who walked into one-move mates.

    One of the 'Hall of Dooms' covered players who castle into mate.

    Just had a quick check so far in 2017 alone there have been 34
    castles by White into a mate next move Game 12306117 is just one example.

    There have so far in 2017 been 37 Black's castling into mate in one.
    Game 12293012 and that is just from Kingside castling.

    Black castling Queenside into mate in one (11 examples)
    including this one. Black castles Q-side on move 35. Game 12043920

    White Q-side castling into mate (9 examples from 2017) including Game 12454058


    White played the only move that allows mate in one.

    I had this in an OTB game.

    I have had many games here on the site that could be called "Immortal".

    The only reason they have not appeared in the forum yet is that my opponents did not want to upset my dignity in revealing how bad I lost.

    Hardly immortal, but an example of walking into a one-move mate:



    This was one of the first games I played at RHP (as Black here), not knowing what my strength was after a hiatus from chess of about 30 years. I reckon I had about 900+ points on my opponent, but I did not know that at the time.

    Hey Greenpawn, surely the RHP immortal is that intuitive queen sac that was too deep for engines to find for hours on end?? It was years ago, maybe you know it/could find it ... but i've no idea how
