Something horrific like Nf6+ 'mate', 1-0?
Not as such
Mm. How about 10. Bf6 exf6 (trying to be clever) 11. Nxf6 mate nonetheless?! Btw, just how many tempi has black managed to lose in this game!?
I thought losing tempi was an antiquated concept (as apparently did the players).
Did white play Nxe6 :-)Tickly
hi moderator.Meant Nxd6++
In a way of course your first entry would have made just as much sense.
Did White somehow 'checkmate' Black, then later it was noticed it wasn't mate at all?PG
I think there is a consensus growing around what may in fact be the right answer....
I wondered about Nxd6 mate too. We shall see...
Was it a counter-attack, something like the following?10.O-O-O f6 11.Nxf6+ Nxf6 12.Bxf6 Bh6+ 13.Kc2? Bf5+ 14.Kc3? and Black plays Na4/d5+ (maybe castling first)
I am afraid it was not.We already have the right answer - mate on d6 - and an explanation will be provided tomrrow.
Looks a bit like a game of mine from last season:1 d4 f52 Bg5 g63 Nd2 Bg74 e4 fxe45 Nxe4 d56 Ng3 Nh67 Nh5 Bf88 Qe2 Nf79 Nf6#Adam B.
That 8...Nf7 was a good move, wasn't it?
Well I nearly fell off my chair when he played it.AB
was this a university match?Heard of the very same thing before, but hadn't seen actual game.
was this a university match?Not as such!
How about 10 c5 Nd5 11 dxe7 Nxe7 12 Nd6#
I'm afraid not...
Is it Nxd6#, by any chance? ;)Richard
Isn't Adam B's game one for your 'Worst Move on the Board' collection?PG
Oh, it certainly meets the most important criterion.(I think it does anyway. I thought that last week's Dahlin-Richardson move did as well, until one of the comments pointed out another way to be mated in two....)
In fairness I had 3 successive games at that venue which were decided by someone creating a mate in 1 for their opponent - bad lighting perhaps! On one of those occassions I was the "matee" (as opposed to "mater". If these terms exist, if not then they should)AB
