Above all are the examples of smothered checkmate.
In chess , a smothered mate is a checkmate delivered by a knight in which the mated king is unable to move because he is surrounded (or smothered) by his own pieces.The mate is usually seen in a corner of the board since fewer pieces are needed to surround the king there. Here I have taken the examples of smothered checkmate at the king's original place.
