1. e4 Nc6 2. Nc3 e5 3. Nf3 Nf6 - Mate in 19 moves
I have been taking it on the chin at the various online chess sites, where I am experimenting with all kinds of strange openings and moves and often getting clobbered by the opposition in the process. But trial and error are the sources of learning.
Good games, of course, are always remembered fondly.
Here is a win I just completed at Game.Knot.com, which was particularly pleasing, resulting in a mate after only 19 moves.
Any checkmate under 20 is always a pleasure, as long as one is on the right side of the board, of course. The mate is already clear a number of moves previous to that since the king has nowhere to go.
