|Jul-01-13|| ||M.Hassan: "Very Easy"
White to play 11.?
White is behind by a Rook for a pawn but he has a classical case of smothered mate ahead:
12.Qe8+ (R or N)xe8
|Jul-01-13|| ||morfishine: 11.Nd6++ forces mate|
|Jul-01-13|| ||Once: <phony> I suppose it's likely that NN was really NN + NN|
Both this and the 1897 game seem to be off-hand games played in the margins of major tournaments. In other words, here are people who love the game so much that they find every opportunity to play. Playing for the sheer joy of it, not just winning or losing the tournament.

|Jul-01-13|| ||hedgeh0g: TGIM!|
|Jul-01-13|| ||Oxspawn: I so did not get this. Not any of it. Loved the game when I played it through. The bravado, lack of calculation and carelessness... reminded me of me. (Well, black did). 1886. I like to think they played this while galloping through Hyde Park in a hansom cab with the horses frothing and the pieces fallng off the board on every corner.|
|Jul-01-13|| ||LJLMETAL: It took me about 5 seconds.
A smothered mate on the d8 square doesn't happen all that often
|Jul-01-13|| ||Doniez: Good example of smothered mate. And I like Monday's puzzle! 1 full point for me today. Anyway, King Gambit accepted may result in a very dangerous short game for black.|
|Jul-01-13|| ||sfm: <WhiteRook48: you need two people to team up on NN?>
LOL! Just my thoughts, especially when one of them is Bird.
He probably also this time didn't manage to light his pipe before it was over, but in happier circumstances.|
|Jul-01-13|| ||sfm: <Once: ... Playing for the sheer joy of it>
Really?? Oh my, the world does consist of all kinds of weird people.|
|Jul-01-13|| ||jffun1958: 11. Nd6++ Kd8 12. Qe8+ Rxe8 13. Nf7#|
|Jul-01-13|| ||zb2cr: This is a fun one. White uses a double check, since his Queen is under attack. |
11. Nd6+, Kd8 (11. ... Kf8; 12. Qf7#).
12. Qe8+, R(N)xe8; 13. Nf7#.
|Jul-01-13|| ||paulalbert: Smothered in the middle rather than the typical corner. Nice!|
|Jul-01-13|| ||gars: God bless the Mondays!|

|Jul-01-13|| ||kevin86: Mate in 3=smothered mate. After move 11 white's checking pieces are both en prise-but both cannot be taken AT ONCE.|
|Jul-01-13|| ||BOSTER: After 8...gxh1=Q black has extra rook, but problem is only one his new-queen has nothing in common with old one except the color. Gone by the strong <ego> the queen thought "I can do it alone", but it was a big mistake because one man is not a warrior in the field.
After nice snack (the full rook) the new queen lost her playful and mobility.|
Yes, the new queen is younger, but who wants to pay any attention when the queen is in corner of the board. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't.
At the same time the white queen with great smile finally reached the <childish> pos. on h5, after magic zigzag Qxg4-Qxh4-Qh5, and black is lost.
|Jul-01-13|| ||skeptic50: And NN loses another one in grand fashion! But it did take 2 people (Bird and Nobell) to clean his clock!|
|Jul-01-13|| ||gawain: Nice points about this smothered mate are (1) the initial double check and (2) that the trap closes equally firmly after either 12...Rxe8 or 12...Nxe8.|
I've never heard of the Quade Gambit. Who, if anyone, was Quade?
|Jul-01-13|| ||gawain: Quaade Gambit: Oxford Companion to Chess has it with aa. "Advocated by a Dutch sea captain, D.L. Quaade, in 1882 but known earlier."|
|Jul-01-13|| ||Gilmoy: Foolidor's Legacy!|
|Jul-01-13|| ||notyetagm: Bird / Dobell vs NN, 1886 Game Collection: MATING PATTERNS: SMOTHERED MATE|
|Jul-01-13|| ||Patriot: What a wild position. However, 11.Nd6++ ends things quickly. 11...Kd8 12.Qe8+ Nxe8/Rxe8 13.Nf7# or 11...Kf8 12.Qf7#|
|Jul-01-13|| ||FSR: Hmm, must be Monday. 11.Nd6+ Kd8 (11...Kf8 12.Qf7#) 12.Qe8+ Rxe8 13.Nf7#.|

That would be Amos Burn. Marshall vs Burn, 1900
