A Fischer Random Win by Queen-Rook Checkmate

This club correspondence chess tournament game began in mid-July of this year and ended today when I caught the Black King in a Queen-Rook Checkmate.

This game was played under Fischer Random rules. That means we started with the pieces on the board arrayed differently than they’d be in a standard chess game. All other rules remain the same.

So from this assigned board:’
