Keyword Query: Chess Checkmate Strategy
You're after a reliable Chess Strategy for Checkmating the enemy King.

I think, from my perspective as a beginner, I found the easiest type of Checkmate Strategy to remember was where a couple of your Pieces 'gang up' on the enemy King to, effectively, 'shepherd' him to one of the edges of the board, for a fairly efficient Checkmate.

I call this the Shepherding Strategy, for want of a better term.

Rooks and Queens tend to work best ... Naturally, 2 Queens, because of their additional diagonal movability, will get the job done more efficiently than 2 Rooks.

However, a combination of Rook and a Queen, or 2 Rooks, are good enough to see this Strategy through to victory.
