I thought this was unique because the two pieces that could have taken the attacking Knight were pinned to the King.
It's kinda funny to see white trap himself :P
This is actually something very rarely seen. Mate is only possible because of two different pins - and even a third pin of Bh4 against the Qe1 exists!
My first thought was it was a manufactured game, but playing through it seems natural enough, even if 29 Re2 was almost suicidal.
Thanks proKnight and Estragon for both of your inputs.
He wrote "I missed that, well played".
Wow did not see that coming!
Neither did he.
If pawns had names, what would you name each pawn?
