Jan-04-04  patzer2: After Black's 35...Ne8 (probably played in frustration in an otherwise lost position), White demonstrates the win with a pretty four-move mate.

Note that if 35...Qxe7, then 36. Qxe7 wins the queen (due to the pin on the rook) with mate to quickly follow.

  fredthebear: This is a form of Anastasia's Mate which features a Ne7 cutting off the Black monarch and a heavy piece delivering mate on the h-file. (The original had a heavy piece sacrifice on h7 to expose the king before the beheading by the second heavy piece.) According to Schiller's Encyclopedia of Chess Wisdom p. 294, "This checkmate got its name in a novel by W. Heinse called Anastasia and Chess (1803)."
