    I sheepishly played Rb1, and black took the bait. I didn't notice that after Nxb8, the queen covers c7! Luckily, I kept looking at the position.

    Not Quite a smothered mate...the next best thing.

    I was having a torrid time tonight, kept losing on time in won positions or
    saccing the house and getting hammered.
    Some nights I'm unbeatable at blitz, (lucky), other nights I'm a dope (very unlucky.)

    ...then I pulled this off (I got lucky again.)

    He was actually a good lad. In our previous game it was K & R v K & R
    and he was 30 seconds up to my 10 but chopped Rooks for the draw.

    Flick the board so you can see it from my side.
