Once in every chess players lifetime: smothered mate

June 22, 2015

I recently blogged my king walk up the board, in homage to Nigel Short’s famous win against Jan Timman.

It set me thinking: what else should every chess player have the chance of, at least once in his career?

A king walk

A smothered mate:

 

Alas, my opponent resigned, which is akin to poor form. So not quite a smothered mate.
