My shortest checkmate in BDG

Jyrki Heikkinen — Vesa Jouhki, Helsinki, Finland, September 1998

1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 Bf5 5.fxe4 Nxe4 6.Qf3 Nxc3 7.bxc3 Bc8?!

White's obvious target is the f7 square. Without knowing the theory recommendation 8.Bc4 e6 9.Nh3, I wanted to prevent Black from playing e6, and played a prophylactic move.

8.Bg5 h6?

8...Nd7 is necessary.

9.Bc4 hxg5? 10.Bxf7+ Kd7 11.Qd5# 1-0
