Extreme Mate ...!
The game can be had here ...!
34. hxg8 = B#
or 34. hxg8 = N# as well
due to discovered attack from the rook.
True. Thanks for the awesome observation.
Kind of a similar game, at least in terms of a ballsy ending:
Maybe this counts for this thread (or the last-second win one?), at least considering the alternate lines for where white hangs his queen. If not, I'll delete it. Comments/analysis welcome.
Here's a Mat05 without the queen which is under check the entire mating sequence, finished with a satisfying pawn-takes-queen to complete the mate.
A good game ...

Move 20. Be7 looks interesting. fork, because if he moves the rook you can X the knight with an attack on the queen.
I like ur games ! In this game 39. I would have gone Qc6 to create a passed "a" pawn. Black looks solid and in a blitz game it is kind of risky to let go of a direct attack..like really risky, but opening up further play on the board can be bewildering. Against a higher rated player.. you may however blunder under time pressure because they're more exact with understanding situational play, but it's good practice when you can.
