Some basic mating patterns everyone should know. (Part 1)
I like the mate patterens you show.
But I thought the Arabic mate was with a rook, knight and pawn?
I.... did'nt know them all, as usual you're very enlightening! thanks for the lesson
Yeah thanks for that knew them all but not by name also thought damios mate involved a two rook sacrifice but probably just confusion on my part lol.
Great material. Anastasia's Mate can also be delivered by a rook. Anyone who wants a couple more examples can see them at the above link.
