  3. What is this mate called.

Queen attacking 6 squares like dove tail mate with a bishop covering the other 2. I have a picture but I can’t find a way to post an image.

Can you upload it to Imgur and post the image link here?

Dovetail bisop

The dove tail and the two bishops. It‘s certainly the peace mate! for display, but I think Q+B dovetail works fine. Thanks

Balestra mate
