Queen-pawn-Bishop Combination Checkmate


I won this correspondence chess club tournament game earlier today with a nifty 3-piece combination checkmate. My White Queen is the attacking piece here, and all possible flight squares for the Black King are covered by my g4-pawn and the Bishop parked on the g3 square.

Position of pieces at game's end is pictured above, and our full move record is below:

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 d5 3.Nc3 dxc4 4.e3 Bd7 5.Bxc4 c6 6.Nf3 Bg4 7.h3 b5 8.Be2 Qa5 9.O-O Bf5 10.Bd3 Bg6 11.Bxg6 hxg6 12.a3 b4 13.Ne2 g5 14. Bd2 Qb6 15.Nxg5 Qb5 16.Bxb4 Qxg5 17.f4 Qg6 18.Rf3 Nbd7 19.Rg3 Qf5 20. Rg5 Qh7 21.Qa4 Nb8 22.Rd1 Ne4 23.Ra5 a6 24.Nc3 g5 25.fxg5 Nxg5 26.Rxg5 Bh6 27.Re5 Ra7 28.Bc5 f6 29.Re6 Rd7 30.Re1 Kf7 31.Qc4 Rd5 32.Rxe7+ Kg6 33.Rxh7 Kxh7 34.Nxd5 cxd5 35.Qxd5 Kg6 36.g4 Kg7 37.Qb7+ Kg6 38.Ba7 Kg5 39.Rf1 Kh4 40.Bxb8 Bxe3+ 41.Kg2 f5 42.Bg3+ Kg5 43.Qg7# 1-0

And the adventure continues.
