  1. Boden's Mate
    Games that end in Boden's mate.'...
    17 games, 1853-2017

  2. Drawing lines
    These are short games (or in a few cases long games that could have been agreed drawn much earlier) that end in a draw as a logical consequence of the position, usually by perpetual check or other repetition of position, or by an agreed draw in a very drawish endgame.
    356 games, 1872-2019

  3. En passant mates
    These are games where a player effected checkmate by capturing a pawn en passant. It's very rare, comparable in rarity to mating by castling. I think it's become more common in recent years since anyone can play thousands of games on the Internet. As far as I know, I am the only person who has managed to achieve this feat twice!
    4 games, 1928-2017

  4. Exchange Sacrifices
    These are games where a player sacrificed a rook for a bishop or knight, ultimately achieving at least a draw.

  13. Lilienthal!
    Andre Lilienthal, who died in 2010 at age 99, met or played every world champion except Steinitz, beating Lasker, Capablanca, Euwe, Botvinnik (twice), and Smyslov (four times). According to his biography, he also beat Alekhine "in a serious game," but I haven't seen that game.

  14. Mate by Castling
