Just so any future readers will not wonder just what claims were remove here they are: • No opening book • No end game studies I keeping with the spirit of this point I offer the following. What is the quickest checkmate possible in Spartan Chess? I believe this is it. Persian Fools Mate No. Persian Spartan 1. g2-g4 Wg8-f6 2. f2-f3 Wh4 # This was prepared by H.G. Muller to clarify Spartan Chess rules concerning check and duple-check. Black to play. Black has two possible moves: Kg1-f1 and g2-f1. Since either move will expose both Spartan Kings to attack they are illegal. Therefore the situation is a draw due to stalemate.
