Mate Pattern

Here's the crazy mate pattern from my game last night. I completely overlooked that it was a checkmate. (I suck at chess)

The mates with lot's of free space around the king can be tricky to see. But don't worry - if a world champion can fall for a mate on the back rank, why shouldn't you?
