    Has anyone seen a game or puzzle in which castling results in mate?

    Edward Lasker's immortal didn't, but could have ended in O-O-O#:

    However, as rare as O-O-O# is, I think O-O# is even that much more impressive.

    For those (like me) who delight in such silliness as puzzles/games ending with castles, try and locate a delightful book by Tim Krabbé called "Chess Curiosities" (Schaak Kuriosa, in Dutch). Some of the subjects in his book have been published in Chess Lige & Review in the 1970s. One chapter devoted to amazing aspects of castling in chess.

    On his incredible website he has posted many obscure, weird, insane, creative, (insert your own adjective) positions and games that I have spent all too many hours, and keep coming back.

    See: http://www.xs4all.nl/~timkr/chess2/kuwait.htm for a sample, but be warned that reading his site is addictive!

    As noted by TheGrobe, the Edward Lasker skittles game could have ended with castles for the mating move, but didn't (though some sources report it inaccurately.)

    Two games that did: 

     

    and there are numerous composed problems that end with mate.
    For some variations on this theme, please

    A low level game, so not of all that much interest.

    For some reason I still can't insert a game properly here lately. If anyone would like to create a board I'll delete the pgn.

    edit: Thanks Anthony for doing up a board.

    One of the cooler things about this game editor is that you can paste raw notation into it and it will still work.

    I'd possibly find others but I can't figure out how to do a chessbase search with a mating O-O or O-O-O.

    Krabbé gives the game as Morphy-NN, New Orleans, 1858, odds of white's QR, as you have removed, and notes 17...Kb1 avoids the castle-mate, and puts the game in doubt.

    I am sure I've clobbered someone with this before.  I remember thinking it was a first (for me anyway).  That's gonna annoy me now, got to track down that game.  Laughing

    Playing black, I once had a game end with o-o resigns. But I've never actually had a game end with o-o# or o-o-o#


    I'd like to see this game. If you don't have it anymore, then what was the case with resigning? King in the center or behind development too much and messed up position?
