In chess problem parlance, this is close to being a mirror model mate. In a mirror mate, no square around the mated king is occupied; here, only the Bb2 invades the king's field. In a model mate, every square around the mated king is guarded only once, and every attacking piece particpates in the mate; here, only the square d2 is doubly guarded.

Feb-21-07  Zvi: What if the mated king stands on c1, for example, and no square around him is occupied? is this a mirror mate? (I ask because there are only 5 squares around the king, not 8) Same question about model mate - can a king be "model mated" at the edge of the board?
