    Has anyone played in or know of a game where a player has forced mated themself? Thought it would be funny if we could start a collection!

    Give me time, the way I play I'm sure it'll happen sooner or later.

    For example you play a knight check that forces a recapture that mates your king

    You might try searching for "selfmate"--that's what I've always heard it called anyway. I've only ever seen it in puzzles, never a real game. I'll be interested to see one if you find one.

    Sounds like a specialized case of a selfmate problem in which your opponent's moves are forced.

    Gotcha, I was thinking helpmate when you said selfmate.
