Checkmate Patterns by Peng & FTB shrinking
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

This collection was compiled by Penguincw.

Fredthebear has farmed out games to other collections. This is not the original collection.

Mongredien's Knight Mate: Use the knight to give check, while the rook stands guard on the file, and the pawn prevents the king from moving forward.

Mighty Queen Mate: The queen moves to the back rank, and checkmates all by itself, since the pawn blocks the king's escape.
