Tsumi and Hisshi (詰みと必至)
More ofen than not, the game is so close you don't know which one is winning. In this case, more you know about game closing, the better chance for you to win. I will explain about two topics here. One is Tsumi (or checkmate) and another is Hisshi (BrinkMate)

Resources that you can use to brush up your tsume skill
Unlike Tsumeshogi problems, it is fairly difficult to find hissi examples for biginners in Internet. One link is shown here. In the past, I used to show Yumoken link but unfortunately the site appeared to have disappeared. That is a nature of Internet. In the future, I will add a small collection of simpler hisshi problems in this site. Until that day, enjoy the link below.
