Anyway:
Spoiler:

The smallest I can figure it to be is three cuts (four pieces):
1) Cut two 4x10 pieces, and then cut off a 1x2 piece from the remaining 2x10.

or

2) Cut off a 1x10 strip, cut a 1x1 square from the end of that strip, and then cut out a 1x8 strip from the middle of the remaining 9x10 square.

I can't imagine doing it in 2 cuts, but I'll keep trying.
Good tries, but it's possible to do it with fewer pieces.
