Oct-14-06  Open Defence: heh .. .Black thought he could draw this ;-p

  GrahamClayton: Black could have resigned after move 56, but I think he decided to have a bit of fun.
Mar-07-17  Inedit2: And mate with the minimal piece: a roque, not a queen !
Mar-07-17  ChessHigherCat: Black's refusal to resign can only be explained by his underestimating his opponent because he violated the "move pieces not pawns" rule about 25 times in a row starting from move 38.
