    As Vinedrinker says, it's a smothered mate. I think this particular one is sometimes called Philidor's Mate, or Philidor's Legacy.

    I'm not sure, but is this also a venus fly trap mating net, resulting in a smothered mate?

    Thanks lads, I thought it was a smothered mate but that it had a particular name like some mates such as Lollis mate or arabian mate.
