  kevin86: This may be my alltime favorite game! It looks like white has black on the run-but the rook whizzes back to block the check--and discovers mate!!!
Apr-05-05  cade: I remember there is some movie where two people are playing chess and one guy moves a piece and goes "check". The other guy looks at the board, moves a piece and says "checkmate!". Its generally mocked by chess fans for being stupid.

Well heres that game!

Aug-09-05  Averageguy: I never thouht I'd see a game where one player responded to a "Check" with a "Chesckmate"!
Nov-10-05  aktajha: This is the same game as NN vs Winkelman, 1945
Mar-11-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: I don't believe what i just saw!
Apr-15-06  MorphyMatt: lol queen takes queen, CHECK!! oops, that's mate!

  offramp: That is checkmate. But what if it wasn't? If white could play 15.Ke1 then black couldn't play 15...Rxe1 because his rook is pinned.
Jan-31-07  Sibahi: Rxe1 captures white's king before white captures black's. Therefore.. Rxe1 is possible.
Dec-05-08  WhiteRook48: weird mate...
Jan-04-09  WhiteRook48: what a checkmate!
Jan-04-09  sallom89: I agree that the ending is beautifull.
Jan-11-09  WhiteRook48: some people have problems about a pinned piece helping in a checkmate.
Jan-12-09  YoungEd: Sweet!

  GrahamClayton: Is this the only game where a player has responded to a check with a discovered check giving checkmate?
