OTB Tournament 3 and 5 movers Here are two short mates I played in OTB tournament games when I was a young 2200 player. What's curious about both is that the opponents were decent players who actually got in trouble by seeing threats . . . :

NN (1550) vs. Gaijin: 1.f4 e5 2.fxe5 d6 3.exd6 Bd6 4.Nf3 g5 (Threatening g4 N-moves Qh4+, so White "defends" against that threat . . . ) 5.h3?? Bg3# Strangely enough, I once beat a master in a speed chess tournament with 1.f4 f5 2.e4!? fxe4 3.d3 exd3 4.Bxd3 Nf6 5.g4 h6?? 6.Bg6# . . .

NN (1750) vs. Gaijin: 1.f4 e5 2.f5?? (He didn't want to accept that risky gambit P . . . ) d5 (Hmmm, now the P on f5 is attacked, and there's only one way to protect it: 3.g4?? Qh4#. And you thought you'd never see the Fool's Mate in a real game, eh?

Yes, both opponents were seriously embarrassed! These two games were featured prominently in an article I wrote 20 years ago boringly subtitled something like "Tournament Games I've Won in 10 or Less Moves."

My shortest games In an OTB 5-minute tourney:
1. d4 f5 2. Bg5 h6 3. Bh4 g5 4. e4 gxh4?? 5. Qh5#
In "bounce" games, I once lost with:
1. e4 d6 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. c3 Nxe4? 4. Qa4+ oops!
and won with:
1. e4 e5 2. d4 exd4 3. Qxd4 Nc6 4. Qe3 g6 5. Qc3? Bb4!
Shortest game I've ever witnessed:
1. e4 e5 2. f4 Qf6 3. fxe5? Qh4+ !

Even Weirder The strangest short game I ever witnessed was played by my son Jeremiah in an elementary school tournament when he was 8: NN-Jeremiah: 1.e4 d5 2.ed Qd5 3.Ke2?? Qe4#. Curiously enough, back in the 30's when the rule was (temporarily) that if you made an illegal move, you had to substitute a K move, this same game appeared in a master tournament when White played 3.Bc3?? (those darned pieces all look alike!) and had to retract it and play 3.Ke2 . . .
