    This was a fun game which I thought I would share (gets interesting from about move 20...). The checkmate here got me thinking of games where the King has many flight squares but is still checkmated. Does anyone have games where the King had 8 flight squares, all covered?

    And all the better the checkmate if the King had 8 covered flight squares that isn't a RRQ or RQQ combo...

    Thats the way! I always knew, clicking is the way to heaven!

    Is really a nice position you found. Now we need one, with only minor pieces and an assassin pawn
