Leearn Checkmates on the 3rd/6th Outer File
Compiled by fredthebear

This collection was peeled off Fredthebear's larger collection of checkmates. Some interesting kingside attacks can be found in here.

These checkmates feature Na6/Nh6, Ba6/Bh6 or Qa6/Qh6 for White. (Checkmates by Black feature Na3/Nh3, Ba3/Bh3 or Qa3/Qh3.) Such a piece on the outer file usually blockades the backward pawn and effectively limits the opposing king's mobility.

The original Boden's mate w/Ba3# features criss-crossing bishops. Boden's mate is included but not the intent of this section. A broader scope is intended.

Most of these checkmates do not include a queen sacrifice as a precursor to mate. She often gives supported mate, or cuts off the escape so a minor piece can give mate.

* Game Collection: Checkmate: Checkmate Patterns This link has a good, concise collection of diagrammed checkmate patterns by name. The new reader may wish to consult it initially to the point of memorization.
