These smothered mates with a knight always look so clever.  I wonder if I'll ever do one, or have one done to me, in a game.

Andre Philidor: September 7th 1726 - August 31st 1795; was once the best players in the World.  According to his fame; we have the checkmating pattern otherwise know as the Smothered Mate.  The Smothered Mate is a common method of Checkmating.  It occurs when a Knight Checkmates a King that is smothered (surrounded) by his friendly pieces and he has nowhere to move; nor is there any way to capture the Knight.  Also know as Philidor's Legacy!
