Default Mate in 3 from my game tonight.

It took me a few minutes to figure it out. White to move.

Very good. The rook on d7 has a double misfortune, doesn't it? It is pinned to begin with, then blocks an escape route.

Yes, a double misfortune. Looks like it could be published in a book of mate problems. Chess book, I mean. lol

F. Reinfeld would not stoop so low as to publish such a trivial problem, except maybe for stinking, rank beginners.

Fact: a true three mover chess problem is actually quite hard, and will even give a master a pause.

It's a very nice mate in three with rook sacrifice.

It's not so hard to solve, but that is of course when you know it is there.

The vast majority of class players would most likely overlook this in a game.

Here is a nice mate in 9 ply, starting with a castle sacrifice:

[Event "rated standard match"]
[Site "Free Internet Chess Server"]
[Date "2015.07.26"]
[Round "?"]
[White "Eliyahu"]
[Black "midnightpawneater"]
[Result "*"]
[WhiteElo "1769"]
[BlackElo "1562"]
[ECO "B90"]
[TimeControl "1080+18"]

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 a6 6. Bc4 e6 7. Bg5 Be7 8.
Qf3 b5 9. Bb3 Bb7 10. h4 h6 11. Bxf6 Bxf6 12. O-O-O O-O 13. g4 Bxh4 14. Qh3
Bg5+ 15. Kb1 b4 16. Nce2 Bxe4 17. Rhg1 Qb6 18. f4 Bxf4 19. Nxf4 e5 20. Ng6
Bxg6 21. Nf3 Qe3 22. Rxd6 e4 23. Rxg6 exf3 24. Rf1 Qe2 25. g5 f2 26. Rxg7+
Kxg7 27. Qxh6+ Kg8 28. Qg6+ Kh8 29. Rh1+ *


Here's one of my favourite mates in 5, that is: Mate on move 5. Serious game:

[Event "rated standard match"]
[Site "Free Internet Chess Server"]
[Date "2015.08.30"]
[Round "?"]
[White "CraigMorgan"]
[Black "Eliyahu"]
[Result "0-1"]
[WhiteElo "1642"]
[BlackElo "1711"]
[ECO "A40"]
[TimeControl "900+15"]

1. d4 e5 2. d5 Nf6 3. c4 Bc5 4. Bg5 Ne4 5. Bxd8 Bxf2# {CraigMorgan
checkmated} 0-1

And yet another mate on move 5:

[Date "2015.03.29"]

[White "RudolfUllmann"]
[Black "Eliyahu"]

1. f4 e5 2. fxe5 d6 3. exd6 Bxd6 4. Nf3 g5 5. h3 Bg3# *

This has a nice story to it. The opponent wanted a rematch, so we played again with inverted colors, I won, and then another rematch, him white again, and again he started with the Bird opening. This time on move 4 he played g3, so I couldn't mate him in five anymore. He learned from that previous game. So now I had to mate him in six:

[Date "2015.03.29"]
[White "RudolfUllmann"]
[Black "Eliyahu"]


1. f4 e5 2. fxe5 d6 3. exd6 Bxd6 4. g3 Qg5 5. Nf3 Qxg3+ 6. hxg3 Bxg3# *

Chess has it's incredibly funny moments.
