Office buddies who corner you into being their friends
'Are you going out for lunch today?' is a favorite line of the Check-Mates
when the minimal amount of urinals are used in a boys bathroom, but you cannot use one without breaking guy code
5 urinals, people at urinals 2 and 4, so you cannot use a urinal without being next to someone.

Bro i got checkmated today in the bathroom, had to just sit there for 10 minutes so i wouldn't break guy code

Although synonymous with "unbeatable", it can be used metaphorically to refer to anything you hold in high esteem.

Derived from the game of chess; checkmate is an offensive position in which the loser cannot move his/her king out of "check" (ie: imminent defeat).

Checkmate therefore means "unbeatable" with the implication that it is highly desireable to obtain.
"Hey man, have you heard that new Red Hot Daggers album? It's fuckin checkmate!!!"

To sit next to someone in a bathroom stall and then have a really stinky crap. As with chess, this puts them in a position where they are under direct attack, that cannot be avoided.
“I sat in the stall next to Bob and had a big smelly crap. “Checkmate Bob, checkmate.”

Checkmate is a position in Chess, in which a player's king is in a line of attack by an opponent's piece and cannot escape check. Thus, the attacking player wins the game.

Did you know that the quickest possible checkmate in Chess requires four moves only?
"Queen moving from e3 to h6. Checkmate!"
