“I just beat Magnus with an en passant checkmate” Jon Ludvig Hammer

As GothamChess mentions in his video, two absolutely shocking things have happened in the world of chess. Magnus Carlsen lost a game and Magnus Carlsen lost this game in literally the rarest way possible: an en passant checkmate!

Magnus Carlsen has been streaming more lately and in an online game against the Norwegian GM Jon Ludvig Hammer, Magnus got checkmated via en passant!

So, what happened? Magnus and Ludvig found themselves in this position after Rd8+, Kh7.

Then Ng5+!, hxg5, hxg5+, Nh5, Rxh5+!, hxh5, Be4+, ...

... f5, exf en passant checkmate! How awesome is that?
