The various type of mates ... (patterns!).
Compiled by LIFE Master AJ
--*--

Monday; September 28th, 2009.

I thought it would be nice to make a collection illustrating the various "named mates" ... (I get asked about this all the time.)

A good page for this would be:

For a complete list of my better websites, please see: http://www.lifemasteraj.com/my-site....

FYI - Just about ALL of my websites have an "Annotated Games" page. For example, the website that I am best known for is: http://www.ajschess.com/lifemastera.... (This is my old "GeoCities" website, I moved it to its current location when GC stopped offering free websites.) The page for annotated games (on this website) is: http://www.ajschess.com/lifemastera....
