Ho,ho,ho - it is xmas coming again and time for a Santa's sizzler.

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer and Bruce the brown-nosed reindeer argued over who shall be the leading reindeer this christmas. Finally they decided to play a game ot chess to decide the matter.
After the surprisingly short game was over, Santa came to inquire about the result.

Rudolph said: "I played with white pieces. I do not quite remember the moves, but I do know that I mated Bruce on my 7th move."

Bruce said:"That is right, but it was easy as all my black officers were on their initial squares in the final position".

Rudolph added:"Ahh,yes, and now I remember that all my chessmen were on their initial squares before the mating move - and besides none of my pieces were captured".

"Seems like quite extraordinary game" Santa said "I wonder how it went?"

And that is my sizzler to you this xmas:

Come up with a legal game from the standard initial position, where

(1) White mates on his seventh move.
(2) All black officers are on their initial backrank position after black's 6th move and
(3) All the white chessmen are on their initial two ranks with no-one captured after white's 6th move.

Happy hunting and xmas!

[Event "Reindeermatch"]
[Site "Lapland"]
[Date "2011.12.12"]
[Round "1"]
[White "Rudolph"]
[Black "Bruce"]
[Result "1-0"]
[PlyCount "13"]

1. c4 b5
2. cxb5 Bb7
3. b6 f6
4. bxc7 h6
5. c8=Q Ba6
6. Qcc2 Bc8
7. Qg6#
1-0

I think You will agree with me on the following:

- All black officers are back on their original squares after black's 6th move without any being captured.
- All white chessmen are back on their original squares after white's 6th move without any being captured.
(One of them even in his best suit ;))
- White will mate on his 7th move.

I have to thank the two individuals taking part in the poll for their confidence in me! Last time I had a poll
in the Santa's sizzler everyone got it wrong - this time everyone got it right!
