  GrahamClayton: One of the most amazing games in the database. Black voluntary walks his king up to h3 in the early middlegame. Not to be outdone, White then marches his King down to b8. However, while the Black king is perfectly safe on h3, the White king traverses most of the board before being checkmated.

  fredthebear: This is a sideways "Swallow's Tail Mate" or "Gueridon Mate" pattern. (The White king's retreat is blocked by his own units.) It is also a Support Mate (a.k.a battery "Spearhead"), since the Black queen is protected by another unit.

Be aware that anytime an opposing unit aims at or next to your king, that the opposing queen may try to connect with it. Get the queen in close!

No. They have different DOB and DOD.

This dashing game would be fitting of a famous ballroom dancer, though.

  fredthebear: 28…Bg4 would have prevented escape and quickly wrapped this game up in half the moves it took, ruining the show! Black played his 28th and 29th moves out-of-order.

54.Qd4 is an improvement for White, offering an exchange of queens.
