Bishop and Knight

Vs King

(a very advanced basic mate)


  • This is a tough mate to master.
  • Marcel Duchamp, famous French artist was the first to write about the technique to do this mate.
  • You must study the known technique to get this one down.
  • In my classes I always offer a whole box of gummy worms to the kid that can pull off this mate.
  • The mate happens in the corner with same color square as the bishop is on.
