Aug-19-05  Autoreparaturwerkbau: To be checkmated by knight on 5th move is a horrible embarrasement for white, i can't imagine worse one!

  OneArmedScissor: GO GO Power Rangers!
Sep-12-05  ameekmalhotra345: this should be the gam of the century
Sep-12-05  ameekmalhotra345: game of the century
Jan-09-06  Necessary Truths: <OneArmedScissor> Is right, singing the theme song of the Power Rangers would be far more embarrasing for white.
Nov-06-07  xeroxmachine: It says: "more games of Molinari" and then I clicked on linked and what do I find? No more games of games of Molinari not a single one! Who would have thought that?

  Calli: I think he did alright in the Sambuca business.
Dec-04-07  arnaud1959: White should have played 5.f3. The mate would be even nicer.
Feb-06-08  D.Observer: If the game continues with 5. f3 Nd3#, is it still a smothered mate?
Feb-06-08  D.Observer: Smothered in five!

  Xeroxx: <Smothered in five!>

That counts as two wins.

  Nightsurfer: Molinari should have studied the chunk that has been created by a Master Player (!!) five years before - namely on the occasion of the Qualification Tournament of the British Championship 1974! You do not believe that? Then have a look at C W Baker vs Cafferty, 1974 ... a crazy coincidence!

There's always I Skrypin vs A Glebov, 2007 and Lindemann vs Echtermeyer, 1893. Also, 1.e4 Nc6 2.c3 Ne5 3.Ne2 Nd3#.

  FSR: ChessBase's Mega Database 2013 has about 200 games that ended in a mate in 5 or fewer moves. The great majority fit the Scholar's Mate or Fool's Mate templates. Milan Gardijan (2153)-Gordana Sulc (2020), Bizovac Metalis op 11th 2004 is one that doesn't:

1.e4 c5 2.c4 Nc6 3.Ne2 Ne5! (Black doesn't let her opponent's near-master rating stop her from going for the gusto.) 4.d4! ("What do you take me for?") Qa5+ 5.Bd2?? Nd3#
