    An amusing game anyway🙂 Note how he managed to get his queen totally boxed in!

    Anyone else have pawn checkmates here?

    I did a blog on a thing called the Assassin Pawn.
    Here is the meat of that blog.

    --------------------

    First an illustration of the Assassin in action.

    mrdougie - Hamish McLobbie RHP 2010



    Now an Assassin Combination .

    Agarath - Indosmart RHP 2008



    Rumdrum - jamal ham RHP 2006

    Black activates his King for the ending but strays too far into the White camp.



    mang00neg - desertdiver RHP


    The Assassin is the h6 pawn.



    And now an opening close to my heart. The Latvian Gambit.
    The Assassin here is the f7 Pawn. The Latvian Gambit pawn.

    Dutch Defense - Libellule RHP 2007



    And this next one is just plain daft.
    Black attacks White with his Kingside pawns and a lone Bishop.
    The Assassin starts of h7 and 15 moves later he strikes.

    taipei5200 - goCavaliers RHP 2009



    OK to make up for that last game we end this Assassin Anthology with
    a wonderful piece of Chess Trickery..

    Nallapuh - rcstas RHP 2005



    We end with a cartoon Assassin.

    weller - Sl64w RHP 2001


    Black is getting mated here no matter what he does.
    He decides to enter the Black Museum. 1….g5


    2.hxg6 ep Mate. You don’t see an En Passant Mate everyday.
    And only an Assassin can do that.

    Thread 142937 if you have an Assassin Mate you want to share.

    An oldie: check mate by a pawn move (it is not check mate by a pawn but I guess you'll understand why I had to post this)
