Fishing the Moon from Under the Sea Checkmate

Quite a commonly used technique in Xiangqi, the basic idea is to control the bottom most rank or sometimes the throat rank before a check is given by a chariot.
I had previously called it the Deep Sea Salvage Checkmate, but in the free ebook on kills by the WXF, this kill was called the Fishing-the-moon-from-under-the-sea checkmate,which is a direct translation of the Chinese name.
