Checkmate is the heart of a chess game.

 

 There are many known mating patterns - how certain pieces coordinate to deliver mate and chess players should know these by heart. Knowing how to deliver mate opens a world of possiblities and surprises.

 

In this exquisite game, Black shows that he knows his mating patterns and begins to set up for Boden's Mate as early as move 10!

His opponent, not so well versed, never saw it coming.
