    you can call it a scholar's mate, even though it didn't seem to happen in a very usual move order.

    That tactic is called checkmate. It looks similar to the Scholar's Mate.

    Oh okay thanks! Doggy_Style: Yes of course, checkmate. A name such as scholar's mate is what I was looking for.

    Auf Deutsch we call that Schäfermatt.  That is literally "Shepard mate."

    Just don't expect it to be well received.
