    If your opponent walks out for a smoke and then sees a pretty girl and goes for a nice cup of coffee while still leaving the clock ticking then you can win in zero moves (assuming he/she is white).

    yeah, the pretty woman variation. But strictly speaking, that's not a check-mate.

    It's some other mating combination.

    Although the fools mate is rare even among beginers, it's idea can be seem in other situations. For instance:

    If you think of Fools Mate as a basic pattern, there are many examples from games that go beyond two moves.

    Several years earlier, a rated player made the same error.
