White Horse Showing Hoof Checkmate 白马现蹄
Chariot Horse Zugzwang Checkmate
In the free E-book by Zhu Baowei (available for download at the WXF), it is called by two names, the white horse showing hoof checkmate and the chariot horse zugzwang checkmate. My original translation for the kill was similar to the first name. I prefer to call it the white horse showing hoff checkmate for the reasons below, 1) has a much better chinese feel, 2) simply kicks ass...
This kill is basically a combination of a chariot sacrifice and a palcorner horse checkmate. A chariot is sacrificed, forcing the opponent's advisors to be ill positioned, thus preparing the opponent for the final palcorner horse checkmate. Enjoy and kick ass!
