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.
