You are playing white in a chess game.
Black - determined to lose - has announced that he will copy every one of your moves and if you put him in check he will resign. How quickly can you defeat his strategy?

I looked at that line originally, but when he can't copy it, he resigns. At least that's what he did in practice. So how do you lose nontrivially?

I have a proof. Anyone else care to try?

1) Nc3 Nc5
2) Nd5 Nd4
Of course you can actually checkmate in 4 moves as in the Royal Game puzzle (2 different ways as far as I know).
