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
sry if there are any spelling errors I just wasnted to create a post before I went to bed.
Hope you enjoyed this post, and I hope people will add and comment.
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....
i mean its awsome!!!!!
Cool game. Love it. Strikingly strong play. Keep it up!
That woulda been nice to see.
yes easy puzzle :)
i like how this site lets you make that kinda format.
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.
