  3. Drawing lines

    389 games, 1872-2022

  4. En passant mates
    These are games where a player effected checkmate by capturing a pawn en passant. It's very rare, I think even rarer than mating by castling. I think it's become more common in recent years since anyone can play thousands of games on the Internet. I have the rare distinction of having achieved this feat twice! IM and chess streamer Eric Rosen, who has surely played more games than I, says that he has also done it twice, which I guess makes us the unofficial joint world record-holders.
