    We all like an easy, quick endgame checkmate. But every now and then, you get a unique checkmate.

    I honestly can't see how one could get a checkmate in only a few moves here... lol

    This is one of my favorite patterns.  It shows up in the Gurgenidze Modern and also the Taimanov Sicilian when White castles short and plays f4.

    Here's another pattern that I like, because of the repeated rook sacrifices on the same square.

    This is not what happened in the game. It wouuld have if he played Qxd5.

    Here's a real easy classic trap I use against patzers/amateurs, though it usually only works once or twice.

    Classic. Btw does this have a name?

    Actually something similar happened to me in a game, but in a Na5 Two Knights line, I was black and won

    This is a great checkmate, skip to the end, and you will see that no matter what White does, Black will play Qxg4+ Qxg4 Be7#, or Be7# directly

    I know that, like I said, it usually doesn't happen that easily, but if you playing someone who just started then it's usually easy to pull off, not in that sequence of moves, but usually something like that with a queen and knight
