  fredthebear: The White king is surrounded in the final position. He can run a few paces, but there is no escape. The Black rook and queen will escort the White king to the edge of the board for checkmate. If this finish were played out to an actual checkmate, a Lawnmower Mate (Corridor Mate) would occur on the h-file. One possibility is 105.Kf4 Re4+ 106.Kf5 Qf3+ 107.Kg6 Rg4+ 108.Kh5 Qh3#. In this type of finish, the queen protects the rook from capture but she does not need protection.

The check triangle final position of the game score is ideal for initiating the Railroad Mate with a lone king caught on the tracks between the rook and queen. Unfortunately, the Railroad Mate using alternating checks to escort the White king down the f-file to Kf8 does not work here because Re8# does not mate since the White queen has e8 covered.

Previously, FTB has referred to this game as an impending Railroad mate. Unfortunately, this site only allows FTB to see two of his collection labels, so editing corrections are more difficult to make. Why the subscriber is not allowed to see each game label for all his game collections is unknown. The same game goes into different collections for different reasons.
