nice , thanks
a typical smothered mate
Philidor's legacy in a new setting away from the corner ! Never underestimate the power of a double check !!
this is great!!!!!!!!!!!!!
a nice queen sac and a powerful knight...
a little side step - a little jig, a presentation of Her Majesty and crash
Smothered mates are difficult to spot in a regular game! Very nice puzzle.
