I was about to lose this game (I was playing white), when I was granted with the oportunity to deliver a smothered mate, even with a queen sacrifice to smother the king, and with a mate-in-one threat from the oponent just before the combination. Just exactly as you would find it in a set of problems.
Fortunately I saw it!! I know it's not the great thing, but I really didn't expect something like this happening in a real game!!
Any of you with similar situations? I mean, with text-book like problemas apearing in real games of yours.
