Checkmate Carpets

checkmate carpets

  • Defeat or frustrate totally

  • complete victory

  • Put into checkmate

  • place an opponent's king under an attack from which it cannot escape and thus ending the game; "Kasparov checkmated his opponent after only a few moves"

  • a chess move constituting an inescapable and indefensible attack on the opponent's king

  • A thick or soft expanse or layer of something

  • form a carpet-like cover (over)

  • (carpeting) rug: floor covering consisting of a piece of thick heavy fabric (usually with nap or pile)

  • (carpet) cover completely, as if with a carpet; "flowers carpeted the meadows"

  • A floor or stair covering made from thick woven fabric, typically shaped to fit a particular room

  • A large rug, typically an oriental one

Looks flat but it's very three dimensional. Stunning leaf pattern. I love the coppery brown and mint green jagged veins. And the stark contrast of the ruffly red flowers with their gold centers. And all wet. A visual treat! So many names for this beauty... Episcia cupreata Check Mate, Carpet Plant, Flame Violet and Strawberry Begonia.

Both Check Mate and Bolivian Sunset are members of the Gesnericeae Family which includes houseplants such as gloxinias and African violets. Leaves are simple, often fleshy and hairy, often with purple coloration. Flowers are bell-shaped or tubular with 5 fused petals, the lower 2 lobes more or less differentiated into a lip. The fruit is a dry capsule or occasionally a berry

OK, so the chess board is set up the wrong way (should be a white square in the lower right corner), and it looks like we're both in checkmate (but only because, after he won, my son accidentally nudged his king up one space from the back row).

Still, once I helped him see it, he set himself up for an elegant checkmate -- sacrificed a bishop to free up a rook to protect his queen, which pushed my king to the corner, where he mated it with his other bishop from across the board. Well done, since I'd been playing pretty aggressively with him to that point.
