  fredthebear: In a double-edged position, it looks like White has delivered a sideways Swallow's Tail Mate, a.k.a. Gueridon Mate in the final position shown. See example:

However, it's not mate; the Black king has escape routes on the g-file. (The supported White rook lacks the coverage squares to deliver a Swallow's Tail Mate at anytime -- this mate is reserved for a supported queen.)

If 39...Kc6 40.RxRh5+ leads to mate after an additional Rh7+ etc. Instead, other discovered checks like 40.Rxd4+ also give White a big advantage, but no immediate mate.

If 39...Kc4 40.Qd3#.

Not 39...RxRd5?? 40.QxRd5#. With the rooks on the fifth rank eliminated, the supported queen delivers a sideways Swallow's Tail Mate! See diagram:

  fredthebear: g-file? Typo. That shoulda read c-file.
