If one mates the opponent's king in the 2 central ranks,(i.e., a5 to h5 or a4 to h4), he may be given plus 10 bonus points in the rating !
What do you think ?
Please explain why?
Do you really want to know?
Why? Normally it is a brilliancy game, that's why.
You mean like when Lenny Bongcloud brilliantly tricked Yosemite Sam into mating him to win the Bongcloud tournament of Charleston, 1976?;
That's a game, all right.
Granted, Yosemite Sam isn't incredibly difficult to trick into attacking.
Above is a self mate win not a normal game.
