  Benzol: Good game for a 10 year old. White resigned just before an epaulet mate.
Jan-21-06  PaulLovric: epaulet=shoulder ornament, what do you mean <Benzol>, it was a fantastic game
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <PaulLovric> Strictly speaking this is not actually an epaulet mate. If there were a piece, say a white rook at d1 and White played 26.♔e1 then 26...♖e2 would constitute an epaulet mate.
Oct-25-06  ronaldducalang: He can do that at 10 years old!?!?
Oct-25-06  TrueFiendish: The classic epaulette mate is, say, black K on h6, black pawns on h5 and h7 and white queen on f6. Voila, his majesty is wearing epaulettes!

  Peligroso Patzer: Wonderful attack. In the final position, White faces ineluctable 26. ...Xe2#. All he can choose is whether "X" stands for "R" or "B". If 26. Ke1, then 26. ... Re2#, and if 23. Kf3, then 26. ... Be2#.
Dec-13-06  DHW: Great stuff!

  FSR: No doubt White wasn't a happy Hooker after this game.
Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: Well, no Hooker likes to get Short-changed.
