| Corridor mate|
The most common checkmate; in this version black can only delay the unavoidable with five piece interference before dying.
| Queen-pawn assault|
A classic assault to the castle. This kind of assault is quite common in real games.
| Bishop+Rook checkmate|
Quite common mate.
| Anastasia's mate|
This checkmate is rare in real games and is difficult to see for the novice; it's anyway an important combination because variations on this line of attack to the King are common.
| Shoulder mate|
Somewhat rare combination in real games, but something that a player must pay attention to.
| Knight+Bishop castle attack|
Castle attack no so uncommon in real games as one may expect.
| Queen fight|
It's uncommon to see a Queen unable to save her King from a mate threat. Rare position but not impossible in real games.
| R+R+Q attack|
This kind of attack faces sometimes in real games; it's a kind of combination that a player should consider.
| Horse Power|
Sometimes the power of an horse is just impressing
The white seems having a lost position and indeed it won the game... this kind of mate is more frequent in real games than one would probably think (often is used as a threat).
| Violent chess|
This kind of mate is often ruined by inexperienced players that begin giving repeated checks. The mate is just three moves away and there is no defense.
