Castling with Checkmate

Castling with Checkmate

Jan 13, 2016, 3:55 PM 2

There are a few famous examples of games that ended by castling checkmate such as Edward Lasker - George Thomas in London 1912 as well as an early Paul Morphy gem (my username-sake for you nerdy fans out there).  But from what I can tell at least, this is a fairly rare way to end a chess game, so I feel quite fortunate that I had the opportunity in blitz today right here on chess.com.

This is a 5-minute game between amateurs so it's full of mistakes and not worth analyzing in-depth.  Just thought I'd share this so you might enjoy it purely for its aesthetic ending.  Hope you enjoy!
