Hi! Swallow's Tail mate is a rare mating pattern. It happens when a king is mated , usually because of a queen. 2 other friendly pieces block off potential escape squares.

It is quite a simple but strange mate. Hope you had fun reading, and enjoy!!

    A rare mate?? I'd say this mate occurs in 50% of all mates that aren't in the endgame
