    Does anyone have any particularly impressive finishing positions that they'd like to share? It doesn't matter if the finishing combination was unsound or the game was riddled with blunders, all that matters is the last position. I was looking around on the site yesterday and came across this:

    Game 4066924 (I hope they don't mind me posting it.)

    On top of that, look at how far back you can go in the game and black still seems to have a forced mate!

    That's a good minor piece crushing in the first one and in the second, the mating move feels so subtle. Very nice, thanks!

    Who else has some?

    I thought this position was a cool mate because it involved 5 necessary pieces.

    It was also a game that featured 2 en passant captures, both of which were critical in the game. How often do you see that?

    Game 5254238

    This one had a cool finish.

    Yes, a great game. I particularly liked 19.Bxb5+.
