j's mates

The following one only involves a queen early in the mate (drawing the king out), but a knight is taken and then the pawn deals the mortal blow.

This one doesn't involve a pawn, but it has a knight's last blocking attempt before mate.

This one has a nice mating net (many pieces involved tightening the noose), but no pawn.
The next two are very famous, we looked at them the other night.
