Don't forget about the back-rank!
Compiled by LIFE Master AJ
--*--

A collection of games where the back-rank mate decides the game.

I started this collection on (Monday) March 31st, 2014. (But it would have been a whole lot funnier if I had just waited until tomorrow!) If you know of any games that you think belong in this collection, be sure to let me know. (http//www.ajschess.com/lifemasteraj/index.html) )

The most famous example of exploitation of the back-rank.
E Z Adams vs Torre, 1920 
(C41) Philidor Defense, 23 moves, 1-0

De Firmian nails it & unexpectedly ends things.
de Firmian vs N Ristic, 1981 
(A04) Reti Opening, 25 moves, 1-0

36... '?' Take advantage of White's weakness.
M Richter vs E Berg, 2011 
(C05) French, Tarrasch, 36 moves, 0-1
