From Parity to Checkmate in Six Moves

I won this correspondence chess game yesterday with a simple Queen-Bishop combination checkmate.

But the bare board at game’s end doesn’t tell the whole story of this game. My opponent and I had actually played well fought game and at the end of our 36th full move we were at material parity: we each had the same number of the same pieces and plenty of fire power.

But from that point to the end of the game, things got quite bloody and ended with my White Queen, assisted by her Bishop, checkmating the Black King.
