* Game Collection: Checkmate: Checkmate Patterns

The preceding link has a good, concise collection of diagrammed checkmate patterns by name (although a few "unofficial names" appear to be contrived by the author Schiller; it does no harm for the practical player). The new reader may wish to consult this visual collection initially to the point of memorization, as chess is a game of pattern recognition. (It contains many common checkmate patterns that do not include knights.)
