Double Check Checkmate

  • #1

    I know these are rather rare, and I just wanted to show one of my games where this recently happened. I just thought an aesthetically pleasing mate would do many chess players nicely.

    Post some other double check checkmates on here as well so all can enjoy Laughing

    i must say its quite intriguing indeed!

    good - because the double-check is necessary for the mate.

    Yah, at first I didn't see the mate, because I was playing a quick rated game here and was in a rush, but I had a little time and saw this little combo to get me the win.

    Cmon people, I'd like to see more posts and other situations on which you guys have done a doublecheckmate

    How do you put your game into this kind of format that you've shown here? I would like to know =D

    No, it's not a double check resulting in a checkmate, unless X can result in X.  (I broke my arm, which resulted in a fracture of the arm?  I don't think so!)  I nominate "double-check mate."  Though doublecheckmate has a certain appeal.  Anyway, I enjoyed it & have no examples of my own to offer! Thanks. 

    EDIT:  This comment was responding to a snarky comment (wrongly stating that this was not a double checkmate but a "double check resulting in a checkmate"), and apparently THAT poster took my point because s/he deleted his/her comment, which unfortunately rendered mine incomprehensible....

    easy puzzle.

    yes easy puzzle :)

    i like how this site lets you make that kinda format.

    very easy

    Very elegant.  Both rook and the bishop are not required for checkmate, just one or the other.  I don't remember if any of my games ever ended up this way, if so probably by playing the computer on the easiest level.
