Chess game vs. Fratoro

Jun 3, 2008, 6:55 PM |

I just mated Fratoro, a 1257 rated player.

For some unknown reason, i never knew that i could mate him but when he was threatening my rook with his bishop i noticed that i could also fork him and when he moves his king, i take his rook and he takes mine. then i get to take his bishop while he takes mine.

But- the thing that was rather surprising was just of the fact that i wasn't realizing the checkmate, just the fork. =D So i felt weird realizing that i also checkmated him when i felt he was overwhelming with me.

To find the surprising game, look under my Games Archive. It's my most recent game.
