  wtpy: I have gotten to play two, that I recall. One was at the end of a long combination and that guy played through to mate. I also have fallen victim to one, shortest game I ever lost.

  patzer2: <whiteshark: <5.Nd5??> How do you get something like that?> I could see it as a blunder in a novice game, but in a correspondence game 5. Nd5?? it makes no sense to blunder a piece for nothing.

Better of course is simple development with 5. Nf3 ⩲.

Jun-04-19  zb2cr: A simple variant on the familiar smother mate. The White Queen covers c2, the square that the Black Knight delivers check from, so the combination relies on Black having 2 of them. 21. ... Qb1+; 22. Rxb1, Nac2+; 23. Qxc2+, Nxc2#.
Jun-04-19  matvox: Black wins.
Jun-04-19  Hercdon: Did miss the smothered mate at first and decide to go after the queen with 21 ... Nbc2 22.Qxc2+ Nxc2+ 23. Kb1? You can recover nicely with 23 ... Na3+ 24.Ka1 Qb1+ 25.Rxb1 Nc2# and still tackle the buffet early.
Jun-04-19  dhruv munjal: This pattern is called Arabian mate
Jun-04-19  dhruv munjal: What a bloody sac by white
It doesn't make sense
Jun-04-19  Diana Fernanda: The Black Is black And win.

I know! I've been to a few barbeques like that.

Jun-04-19  moodini: Down to his last day on his clock white panicked and played 5. Nd5??
Jun-04-19  Willber G: <Phony Benoni: So, which night do we check with after 21. ..Qb1+ 22.Rxb1? My general principle is to do the harder work first, so since the one in a3 is further away that's the one I'd use.>

Ah, but if white had resigned after the initial N check you would have wasted all that effort for nothing!

  gawain: Smothered mate. Surrendering the queen and THEN another piece to bring it about. Fantastic!

Jun-04-19  Christoforus Polacco: In Poland is called : 'Beniowski mate'.
Jun-04-19  mikealando: haha ok.
5.Nd5 was a common blunder in the blindfold correspondence era.
Jun-04-19  DrGridlock: <Phony Benoni: So, which night do we check with after 21. ..Qb1+ 22.Rxb1? My general principle is to do the harder work first, so since the one in a3 is further away that's the one I'd use.>

Aren't all knight moves exactly the same (first one step, then two perpendicular steps)?

How can one knight be closer than the other?

Jun-04-19  Damenlaeuferbauer: After long pondering, Negro with the black pieces finally found the smothered mate in 3 moves with 21.-,Qb1+! 22.Rxb1,Na/bc2+ 23.Qxc2,Nb/axc2#.

  Check It Out: I saw 21...Nbc2+ 22. Qxc2+ Nxc2+ 23. Kb1 Na3+ 24. Ka1 Qb1+ 25. Rxb1 Nc2#

It draws out the suffering a bit more.

Jun-04-19  TheaN: It's a bit sad that Black can actually repeat with 21....Nac2+, start with 21....Nbc2+ or just immediately finish the job with 21....Qb1+. Don't know what White was thinking... pretty much the entire game.
Jun-04-19  Willber G: <DrGridlock: <Phony Benoni: So, which night do we check with after 21. ..Qb1+ 22.Rxb1? My general principle is to do the harder work first, so since the one in a3 is further away that's the one I'd use.>

He's talking about the distance from the player.

  beenthere240: Blindfold correspondence indeed. You're not allowed to see your opponent's move. Maybe Kreigspiel?
Jun-04-19  zb2cr: It's curious that after Black played so much of the game up a piece, and sacrificed his Queen, the final position has the material exactly even.
Jun-04-19  BishopofBlunder: 5.Nd5? Biggest waste of a postage stamp ever...
