  Phony Benoni: I hope White was feeling a bit sorry about putting Black to all that trouble, and decided to go out with a laugh.

  Phony Benoni: And, by the way, not a bad pun for Death by En Passant.

  offramp: A very clever game title. Not.

It is the English translation of the French phrase <en passant>.

Sep-21-17  FSR: I submitted the game but not the pun.

  thegoodanarchist: I thought one of the players must have died yesterday, to get the GOTD today with this title.

  kevin86: Just the second EP mate I've seen.
Sep-21-17  areknames: Judging by the quality of White's play, I'm not sure she would have been even aware of the possibilty of the en passant capture.
Sep-21-17  FSR: <kevin86> Game Collection: En passant mates. I've given some more examples in recent posts to my forum. They're pretty bad games - even worse than this one.
Sep-21-17  Amarande: <areknames> It hardly matters, even without the possibility of en passant, 38 ... Bc4 would have been just as fatal over only a few more moves.
Sep-21-17  FSR: <Amarande> Without the en passant mate, it would have just been a crappy game by White. With the en passant mate, it is one of the few such known games in chess history.

  kevin86: <FSR> have seen those games. If only for their quaintness,they were fun to play.
