Solid Pawn Mate

Robert_Frost

Here is a fun game that resulted in a mate by pawn. Who else has some good pawn mates?

Here's one of Najdof's celebrated games that ends with an elegant pawn mate.  Notice he sacrifices all four of his minor pieces!

thats a good one, move 18.) Ng6 pretty much did it.

In a blitz tournament a few years ago, I was drawn against a FM.

Now I don't like to sit back and get squashed, so I played a very dubious line agains his Alekhine's defense.

It turned out to be my only win ever over a titled player in formal competition, and in only a handful of moves:

Rooperi, that's awesome.  Would love to have seen the look on the FM's face after getting mated in 10 moves lol.
