Queen-Queen Checkmate

Checkmating a White King is easy when you have a pair of Black Queens. I won this correspondence chess game yesterday with the Queen-Queen mate pictured above.

When I replayed this game after it finished I saw some missed moves on my part that could have ended it sooner, but I’ll gladly take my wins however they come. As it happened this was the last game to be completed in a small club tourney, and my win here gave me the second place finish among all the other players. And that made me happy.

The animated gif below shows this entire game played, move by move.
