GAME OVER ROVER!
Do you know what my young Kindergartner student, the captain of the Black Pieces, said to me after this game? He said to me... "This was like one of the mates in the homework". So I double checked his homework also remembering an epaulet checkmate having been amongst the problems to solve. Guess what I found?
The actual problem that helped him to remember this checkmating pattern! That is talent!! He is only in Kindergarten right now too... imagine the combinations this youngster will be pulling off in a years' time!
