    What are your thoughts on the most common why people try to checkmate you? For me they use their queen with the bishop behind it. About 90% of the time.

    I like to use a rook and queen.

    My games very rarely reach checkmate.

    Why? ... because they want to win.

    RBH meant 'Way'

    He has hit 'h' key instead of 'a'.
    Although the 'a' and the 'h' are not next to each other on the keyboard
    one can deduce from what he says in his public profile:

    "121,305 is what I started with at the beginning of 2014. I am seeing how
    many moves I can do in a year then divide it by 365 to get an average a
    day I made for 2014."

    That sometime in his past RBH was a statistical analysist and learned touch typing.
    (the most common touch typist mistake is 'a-h' or visa versa.)

    He is also unmarried. (no married man would have that much time on his hands.)

    Unemployed: Ditto the above and explains the typing error due to lack of practise.

    He plays an open game of chess, yet knows little about openings and rarely
    goes for an opening trap. He wins most of his games over 40 moves.

    How?

    The Queen & Bishop mating battery often aimed at f2/f7 or h2/h7 very rarely crop up
    in closed games. His choice mate, the Queen & Rook occurs most in endgames.

    If you are still unconvinced as to the 'why' and the 'way'
    Look at the thread title.
