  FSR: There's also Fischer vs Panno, 1970 and the zero-move World Championship losses by Fischer and Kramnik, but Djordjevic-Kovacevic is the shortest master game decided because of the position on the board rather than a forfeit or protest.
Jan-12-12  Xeroxx: ridiculous game
Feb-20-12  brankat: So, was this game a fake, or did it really happen?

  Penguincw: If black takes, it's a mate in 2. Otherwise, the queen is lost.
Feb-20-12  waustad: Moshe Czerniak seems to have played the d4 Nd2 opening. Poking through the opening explorer finds his name several times.
Apr-27-13  DoctorD: Although Lazard's death date is given as 1948, this:

was published as a chess problem in 1951, with the note that "it could happen in a real game."

Jan-07-15  Kingcastle: How is the Knight here makes the game difficult? Cant white capture with its pawn? This is a useless Move.

  Bubo bubo: <Kingcastle> Of course White can play 5.fxe3, but then he will be mated in two moves: 5...Qh4+ 6.g3 Qxg3#
Jan-15-15  Kingcastle: Thanks Bubo Bubo

  FSR: There are shorter decisive games than this fake game, such as:

I Skrypin vs A Glebov, 2007

Lindemann vs Echtermeyer, 1893

E Schiller vs H Pack, 1969

Z Djordjevic vs M Kovacevic, 1984

and K D Reichwald vs G Scheuerlein, 2011.

Mar-07-17  Steve.Patzer: That was quick.
Mar-07-17  Dirkster: GOTD? Really??? I've seen more interesting games in beginning chess classes... which is probably where this was taken from! C'mon, CG - you can do MUCH better!!

  OhioChessFan: I am curious, <Dirkster>, what exactly was your mindset in posting? If it was to vent a little, okay. If it was to expect cg.c to change their ways, ummmmmmmm, really? What, Daniel Freeman is going to say "You know, <Dirkster> is right, I <can> do better. No more quick losses due to opening traps that some of the people on this site may have actually played on either side, and if they haven't yet, they could in the future, no sir, we can't have that." There's 700,000 other games here that you can review at your desire. They don't have to be GOTD to gain your attention.
