Mar-15-08  condor: Surely one of the most beautiful finishes ever?

  GrahamClayton: A humorous finish - Black mates with their last remaining piece, while being 2 rooks and 2 minor pieces down in material.

  Phony Benoni: A couple of Similarly outnumbered are: F Young vs L Dore, 1892 and B Fleissig vs Schlechter, 1893.

  kbob: I encountered the position at move 17 as a tactics puzzle, but some knucklehead editor had added a third white knight on h4. It doesn't change the solution, but I skipped over the puzzle as an obvious misprint, and so missed my chance to find this beautiful mate. Not that I would have anyway.
