Nice miniature game; I believe that the smothered mate is probably one of the most stylistic finishes a chess game can offer, when in the right context happy.png

Your comment about the smothered mate being rare due to being on the edge (versus the much more common version in the corner) reminded me of this game of mine I still reminisce about. https://www.chess.com/forum/view/game-showcase/romantic-style-finish-true-lone-knight-checkmate-on-the-edge
