Checkmate: Smothered
Compiled by Penguincw
--*--

Games ending with smothered mate. Smothered mate doesn't have to have the king in the corner nor have the knight land on the 7th (or 2nd if black) rank. Also, in this collection, the checkmate doesn't actually have to happen, but it does have to be right on the next move. The king must be surrounded by his forces. For more details, please look at the diagrams below. Games in order by date.
