Sending the buddha home checkmate
Repatriation of buddha checkmate
送佛归殿
This kill is basically utilizing the double check to push a pawn forward with help from a cannon. Seldom seen in actual play, it is nevertheless a techinique to learn.
I think the first ever such example of the checkmate was found in the Elegant Pastime Xiangqi Manual, vol 3 game 209. It is also from this game where I think the kill got its name. In the same ancient manual, vol 3 game 267 has also the same kill. Enjoy!
