  fredthebear: A stylish finish to Mongredien's Knight Mate!!

Wikipedia copied the bland term "Corner Mate" from a reckless author and the rest of the world has followed suit. I propose that this pattern using a queen sacrifice setting up the knight's royal fork for checkmate be called MONGREDIEN'S KNIGHT MATE!!

Augustus Mongredien was "well-known" in his day. That's enough credentials for me: https://www.chess.com/blog/batgirl/.... More details: https://www.liverpoolchessclub.co.u...

This opening bares his name: (B06) Modern Defense: Mongredien Defense 1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nf3 b6

How does Mongredien's Knight Mate sound?
