 The back rank checkmate is a checkmate to the opponent's king on the last rank where all the possible escape squares to the next rank are blocked.

I'm not explaining this well. Instead of mumbling words, how about an example?

Moral: Look for Back Rank mates early and often. Remember, Back Rank checkmate is a very important pattern! Use it in your games.
