  fredthebear: With the assistance of raking bishops, a queen sacrifice decoys the Black king for a discovered double check, and then it's Mayet's Mate in the corner.

See Chapter 10, Mate No. 9 in "The Art of the Checkmate" by Georges Renaud and Victor Kahn for more of these h-file mates. Renaud and Kahn regard Mayet's Mate as a back rank support mate that could occur on any file, but most famous examples occur against a castled king missing his fianchettoed bishop for defense on the long diagonal.

Here's a similar famous finish by Bobby Fischer: Fischer vs Myagmarsuren, 1967

Max Euwe delivered this miniature: Euwe vs Loman, 1923
