Oct-06-05  aw1988: Good heavens!
Oct-06-05  schnarre: Even I could see that one (& tactics are not my forte).
Oct-07-05  AlexanderMorphy: Have any of you actually seen a Scholars mate or a Fools mate on this database???

Oct-10-05  schnarre: Which ones?
Oct-10-05  fgh: This is a very famous and popular line among begginers. :-)
Oct-11-05  schnarre: <fgh> A mistake that can be made quite easily by a newcomer, eh!
Nov-02-05  schnarre: Wonder if that was a touch-move accident?!
Dec-18-05  schnarre: I'm still groaning over this one!
Jan-20-06  lemgelo: What was black thinking? or drinking?

  Yelena Dembo: Well, the best place for the N is on f6 - attacking the center:) Looks quite obvious:)
Mar-17-06  McCool: OMG. NO WAY. Nge7 is such a better move. (tuh)
May-10-07  Mate Hunter: <Can you make a dumber move here??? Honestly.>

Yes, 5...Nce7!!!

May-20-08  Mate Hunter: <OMG. NO WAY. Nge7 is such a better move. (tuh)>

Better than 5...Nce7! (yes, really)

Jul-09-08  DukeAlba: An embarassing smothered mate...
Nov-26-08  jeeky1996: Just play d5, instead of Nge7.
Apr-11-09  WhiteRook48: 5...Nge7??
Jan-03-10  antharis: B32. Sicilian Defence. Accelerated Harakiri-Variation. Without 6... Ng6. ^^
Dec-01-10  Tigranny: This is a help-smothered mate!
Jul-02-14  Lossmaster: For what it's worth, Black's name is spelled "Mac Cam" in Tartakower's book "Bréviaire des échecs", which features this miniature. The tournament was held in Dundee.

  sachistu: The game is also given in the British Chess Magazine 1893 page 235. The cross table is given on page 233. Black's name was Robert McCann. I'll submit a correction slip to complete the name.
