Iron Bolt Checkmate 铁门栓

The Iron Bolt Checkmate is a basic but very practical kill that can be seen commonly. It involves a Central Cannon pinning the enemy King and a Chariot-King Combination attacking the bottom rank to deliver the checkmate. Two Chariots, a Chariot-Pawn combination or even a combination of Chariots/Pawns/King can be used.
If the piece that is used to deliver the final checkmate is a Pawn it is called a Small Iron Bolt Checkmate 小铁门栓 or the minor version of the Throat Cutting Checkmate/Attack (third Chinese name).


For players who prefer reading about the Basic Kills in a book, the Webmaster has published a book to help you out.
