  Nightsurfer: There is no doubt about the fact that the opponent of Giambattista Lolli , that unknown amateur player <N.N.>, has chosen a goofy defence. But this game here <Giambattista Lolli vs N.N. (1750)> is a historic document, and therefore I am very thankful that the press officer of the Italian Chess Federation, Mr. Adolivio Capece , has communicated to me, the author Rene Gralla , the game record of that winning game by the great <Giambattista Lolli>.

Once more again: MILLE GRAZIE, dear Mr. Adolivio Capece !

  Nightsurfer: The final position in this game here <Giambattista Lolli vs NN (1750)> after <8.Qd8 #> - please see the diagram as follows ...

... is the matrix of a basic checkmate that has been watched - and will continue to be watched - in countless games, just have a look at the finale of J Krejcik vs J Thirring, 1898. The climax of that very game J Krejcik vs J Thirring, 1898 is - with colours reversed - a somewhat modified version of the last sequence of the game <Giambattista Lolli vs NN (1750)> , just compare the beginning of the end in J Krejcik vs J Thirring, 1898 after <10. ... Qd1+!> ... please see the diagram as follows ...

... plus the follow-up blow <11. ... Rxd1 #> (after <11.Bxd1 ...>) ... please see the diagram as follows ...

... and compare the foregoing last diagram once more again with the final position in <Giambattista Lolli vs NN (1750)> after <8.Qd8 #> - please see the diagram as follows ...

  Nightsurfer: The final position of this game here <Giambattista Lolli vs NN (1750)> may look rather simplistic - just have one more look at that very diagram ...

... - but in fact it is more than that: It can be considered as being the nucleus of more sophisticated positions (as being the result of some more sophisticated operations).

Just have a look at the (hypothetical) final position of Reti vs Tartakower, 1910, namely in case that Black - after <10.Bg5++ ...> - would not have answered <10. ... Kc7> (with the consequence of <11.Bd8#>), but would have answered <10. ... Ke8>, with the follow-up knock-out <11.Rd8#> as being the consequence, please have a look at the corresponding diagram after the hypothetical <11.Rd8#> (and you have only to classify the Rook in the corresponding position as being a <"Queen"> that has been stripped of the additional ability to move the way the Bishop moves):

There is one more example - with colours reversed - that can be qualified as being the advanced version of the finale of <Giambattista Lolli vs NN (1750)> after <8.Qd8#>, please compare once more again ...

... namely the final position of M Amini vs R Gralla, 2010, just have a look at that position (again you have only to classify the Rook in the corresponding position as being a <"Queen"> that has been stripped of the additional ability to move the way the Bishop moves):

Those two foreging chunks - as having been produced in Reti vs Tartakower, 1910 and in M Amini vs R Gralla, 2010 - are the off-spring of the <"Mother Of All Those Corresponding Checkmate positions"> in this game here <Giambattista Lolli vs NN (1750>, namely the position as follows:
