  Gypsy: <30.Bc3??> I never saw a mating pattern like this. White obviously also saw it for the first time.

Anderssen's Mate

Some might say that 31...Rh1# is Anderssen's Mate since the supported rook gives checkmate in the corner next to the mated king.

Arabian Mate Variation


click for larger view

It could be regarded as a variation of the Arabian Mate w/knight protecting rook on the edge. Either piece can give the final check, but it's usually the rook. The mated king is often caught in the corner of an Arabian Mate.

The Arabian Mate proper is fairly common; the diagram is rather unusual.

Corner Mate

Wikipedia refers to the diagram as a Corner Mate. Perhaps Corner Mate is an informal tag. FTB suspects some countries may have a different name for such a checkmate pattern but has been unable to verify such.

31...Rh1# is NOT a Corner Mate as such, but merits mentioning for the sake of clarity.

Hook Mate


click for larger view

Pawn placement plays a key role in the Hook Mate. The invading knight must block an opposing unit that restricts it's losing king (but cannot capture the checking rook). A pawn cannot capture backwards, of course.

FTB believes that 31...Rh1# is best described as a Hook Mate that occurs on the edge. It fits the structure of a typical Hook Mate.

It's possible that Hook Mate is an informal tag of the personal computer age that has also stuck. FTB has not verified it's history proper. It is a unique name that seems suitable (where as Corner Mate is far too generic).

Anastasia's Mate

Some might be wondering about Anastasia's Mate with knight and rook. A heavy piece sacrifice is often used to open the h-file and expose the king to checkmate.

Vukovic's Mate

click for larger view

The knight and rook are aligned directly in front of the checkmated king. The rook giving check requires some kind of protection.

This checkmate pattern name has been bestowed upon writer Vladimir Vukovic, who mentions it in Chapter 4 Mating Patterns of his classic book "The Art of Attack in Chess."

Many sources of checkmate (perhaps of American origin) do not mention Vukovic's Mate. Those that do include Vukovic's Mate may have other types of unique checkmate patterns or alternate names. Be aware of alternate spellings - Vladimir Vukovic is easy to misspell!

Mayet's Mate

click for larger view

Mayet's Mate features the bishop somewhere on the long diagonal supporting the rook in the corner. It typically occurs against a fianchettoed pawn structure after exchanges. The rook may enter the corner down an open h-file or from the back rank, then across.

Mayet's Mate is often misnamed Anderssen's Mate. Both feature a rook delivering checkmate in the corner; the supporting unit is the difference.

  fredthebear: <Gypsy> Many moons have passed since your original post. Let's call 31...Rg1# a Hook Mate on the edge of the board.

  fredthebear: Recording errors are a part of chess. 31...Rh1# is a Hook Mate.

In the Arabian Mate diagrammed above, both Kh7 and Kh8 are Arabian Mates, sometimes shortened to Arab Mate.
