Checkmate Patterns # Fredthebear Mating Patterns
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

Checkmate: The word is derived from the Persian "Shah mat." "Shah" is the Persian word for King and "mat" is the Persian adjective meaning helpless for defeated.

Chess mathematicians and problemists have established the fact that a King, Bishop, and Knight can checkmate the opposing King in 460 different ways.

- The Encyclopaedia of Chess by Anne Sunnucks, p. 68. St. Martin's Press, New York, 1970.

The proper names of checkmate patterns are somewhat debated. Some of the confusion comes from well-meaning misprints (mine included herein) given in publications that perpetuate the wrong name. For example, Reti's Mate, Morphy's Mate, Morphy's Concealed Mate, and Pillsbury's Mate are often confused for one another by writers and players (but there is an official designation that distinguishes them apart based upon a famous game in which each occured). For example, Adolph Anderssen played Pillsbury's Mate before Pillsbury.

MORPHY'S MATE is NOT from his ultra-famous 17 move OPERA house victory! (The queenside queen sacrifice preceding Rd8# supported by a bishop is known as an Opera Mate in some publications, and a Reti's Mate in others, even though Morphy's ultra-famous Opera House game occurred earlier.) A proper Morphy's Mate has a rook placed on the g-file but needs no protection.

I will try to adjust these names to comply with the following easy-to-follow websight:

Wikipedia article: Checkmate pattern

Examples of many, but not all, of their checkmates are included below. Unfortunately, well-meaning internet postings are not entirely reliable.

The Art of Attack in Chess by Vladimir Vukovic, "one of the finest chess books ever written" is a source I trust. My version was reprinted in 2003 and edited by GM John Nunn, who is a stickler for accuracy and details. Chapter 4, pages 66-79 is devoted to Mating Patterns. Unfortunately, some examples given remain unnamed as a "typical mating pattern." Other authors have given these examples names that may or may not be official. One example of this is what I call the Hook Mate p. 72 but Vukovic/Nunn refer to this as merely a typical mating pattern.

My vast chess library certainly does contain other checkmate resources. However, until I have actually referenced and cross referenced the books, I will not list them yet. One variance in name somewhat invalidates or at least questions the accuracy of all names given in a particular book. Other books are accurate, but not comprehensive. Unfortunately, my chess library is not located near my computer for easy reference. Shuffling back and forth is required.

Previously I called a Dovetail Mate and a Swallow's Tail Mate the same thing. That is not correct. The DOVETAIL Mate is a DIAGONAL check whereas the SWALLOW's Tail Mate is check from the SAME FILE. The pneumonic device is helpful. (Neither one is an Epaulette Mate.) All labeling corrections have been made to my knowledge, but it's a good bet I have not yet caught all my own errors over the course of collecting and assembling hundreds of games. For my purposes, I do not care what piece actually gives the final check; it's the defense structure that limits escape that warrants the name.

For the purpose of increased examples, I consider an attacking queen interchangeable with a bishop or rook without changing the name of the checkmate pattern. For example, the rook could be replaced by the queen in the final position of an Arabian mate where the knight supports the heavy piece giving checkmate. I still call it an Arabian mate, although it is not fully proper to substitute a queen. My concern is the practical application of the pattern from any position, not the exact piece duplication.

Many of the original checkmates got their name after a sparkling queen sacrifice so it's wise to know the original full sequence. Versions with and without a preceding queen sacrifice are included herein. Some mating patterns were extended beyond the original version because of some quirk in the position that gave the suffering king a few more steps to flee before the final blow. The extended version can be extremely useful for the attacker to know!

Please understand that not all games provided end in actual checkmate. The opponent resigned when faced with the obvious mate in one or two, etc.

After all the ranting about checkmates above, I have also included some favorite stalemates and "queen" mates. These are a far sight different than a checkmate, but the reader may well enjoy them.

Thank you sneaky pete, patzer2, trovatore, and Nightsurfer among others.

Site STILL under construction by Fredthebear. I've tried to edit along the way. Legall's Mate examples are posted in another collection of their own.

* Many KNIGHT checkmates have been removed in 2017 to a separate file to make more room in this file for other types of checkmates.

Updated Index of Current Checkmates:
(Ignore the numbers that follow! The numbers do not aid the reader.) - Fool's Mate (Rapid one piece # on open diagonal to uncastled K) 10 - xh7/xg6/xe6 allows diagonal mate of uncastled king 14 - Scholar's Mate (Supported queen gives rapid # of uncastled K) 15 - Reti's Mate (Queen sacrifice opens final support check on back rank.) I have not yet made the specific distinction of Reti's Mate with rook supports bishop finish a.k.a. Dovetail Mate on the back rank as opposed to the Opera Mate with bishop supports rook finish. 20 - Morphy's Mate (Bishop check crossfires w/Rook on open g-file) 24 - Pillsbury's Mate (Bishop crossfires w/Rook check after a Rook sacrifice on open g-file) 25 - Bishop Assists Rook Mate (There are lots of variations but there's no room to include them all.) 31 - Back Rank Bishop leads to checkmate (fianchetto cut-off) 36

Many of the Following Have Been Re-located to N's Collection: - Arabian Mate (Knight supports Rook check vs K on edge.) 37 - Hook Mate (Knight supported by blocked pawn assists Rook.) 44 - Discovered Double Checkmate 47
- Smothered Mate Miniatures 70 (QGD Albin CG games are removed.) - Joint Knights Mate 100
- Philidor's Legacy (A Smothered Mate sequence by Q and her N) 120 - The Clean Mate (A smothered mate w/an extra step) 140 - Semi-Smothered Mates 155
- Royal Fork and Royal Family Fork Mate - Rare! 160 - Anastasia's Mate (K on open outer file and N prevents inward flight) 170

More of the Index, Less Knight Specific:
- Back rank mate w/support or cut-off assistance 190 - Lawn Mower/Corridor Mate (2 Rooks on adjacent ranks or files; one prevents escape) 200 - Railroad Mate (Q supports R+ shuffle and vice versa; the opposing king occupies the rank/file between the Q & R.) 225 - Blind Swine (two rooks = "hogs" on the 7th) 250 - Lolli's Mate / Damiano's Mate (pawn supports queen) 270 - Blackburne's Mate (Uses bishop pair and a knight for support) 350 - Checkmates from the Corner tend to be quite creative! 370 - Pawn Mates 400
- Pawn Wedge prevents King escape 450
- Promotion Mates 470
- Epaulet / Epaulette Mate (The K's own pieces beside him obstruct flight on the same rank/file... R-K-R) 500 - Swallow's Tail / Gueridon Mate (More obstruction by the K's own pieces "a pawn's capture" behind the K) 530 - Dovetail Mate / Cozio's Mate (The K's own pieces obstruct flight from a diagonal check) 550 - Parallel Bishop Pair / Double Bishop Mate 595
- Boden's Mate (Two bishops criss-cross in X fashion)600 - Fishing Pole Attack (h-pawn recaptures to open h-file) 650 - Greco's Mate (K caught on outer file as B prevents flight) 700 - Single Piece Mates 750 (This excludes Philidor's Legacy and Fool's Mate in the opening.) - Stalemate (Not in check but no legal move available)800 - Perpetual Check Draws / Three-Fold Repetition 850 - Various Assortment of Mates and Misses 900
