    Game 6052095

    Did White's 18th move give me mate in 2 or did he make a mistake?

    EDIT - Sorry, fixed!

    Fixed link.

    Edit: Wrong game no.

    Think it may be this game (it's the last mated finish and it finishes
    soon after move 18).

    White was lost anyway - taking the Knight on e1 put himself out
    of his misery.

    Good sensible Black play - you did nothing but went for development
    whilst youropponent lost time and lost pieces.

    White could have played 19. Be3 to stall the mate for one move more, if that is what you are asking.
