First mate like this with knights covering all the escape squares from king. Full game shown below
Very nice! Brb...burning the position in my mind's eyes' memory for later use...will be sure to credit milijonas from Lithuania if anyone asks.
okay. so knight on either side of king, pawn in front of king and rook above with square in between. got it. (helps to flip the board and see it from black's perspective.)
I have to admit, I've never seen that mating pattern before!
