Queen-Rook-Rook Checkmate

Checkmate

I won this correspondence chess game this afternoon by checkmate with my Black Queen at d3 delivering the fatal strike to the White King. My Rooks at the Queen's side, on the c and e files, covered the King's only possible flight squares.

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

1. e4 d6 2. Qf3 Nf6 3. Nc3 Nc6 4. Bb5 a6 5. Bd3 Bg4 6. Qg3 e5 7. f3 Be6 8. Nge2 Nh5 9. Qf2 g6 10. g4 Nf4 11. Nxf4 exf4 12. Ne2 g5 13. c4 Ne5 14. Bc2 Qd7 15. a4 Nxc4 16. Qd4 Rg8 17. b3 Ne5 18. Bb2 Nxf3+ 19. Kf2 Nxd4 20. Nxd4 Bxg4 21. h3 Bh5 22. Bd3 Bg7 23. Nf5 Bxb2 24. Rag1 O-O-O 25. Rb1 Ba3 26. Bc4 Bc5+ 27. d4 Bxd4+ 28. Nxd4 Rde8 29. Bd3 Re5 30. Rbg1 f6 31. Rc1 Rc5 32. Rb1 Rc3 33. Bc4 Re8 34. Rhg1 Qxh3 35. Be2 Bxe2 36. Kxe2 Rxe4+ 37. Kd1 Qd3# 0-1

And the adventure continues.
