Angler Horse Checkmate
Please refer to the diagram introducing the names of the various positions of the horse. The WXF translation for 钓鱼马 ( 钓鱼= which means fishing, and 马 = horse) is the Angler Horse. This is another very commonly used checkmate technique. The Angler Horse controls only 2 points in the palace, one of the palace corners and the center of the palace. Another piece, usually a chariot is used to perform the final check.
