The Swinging Gate: Push That P to 6 or 3!
Compiled by Gilmoy
--*--

Pattern triggers:
0. enemy Kh8/Kh7 (so that the Q entry is with check) 1. a P on 6 or 3 (usually h)
2. an R behind it (for discovered check)
3. a double on g7/g2 (so that the P will be defended)

Key move: Q(g7,g2)+ for a pawn double-check. This converts to a triangle mate at h8/h1, with the protected-P providing the role of the diagonal-mover, instead of the usual (B,Q)f6/f3.

Benefit: Double-check trumps any overprotection of g7/g2.

Mnemonic: Push that P to 6 or 3!
