Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 160

February 20, 2015

Black to play and win

White plays 1 d4 here




M Bleiden v BE Siegheim 1905

 

Solution

 

A rest day today.

1…Nd3+ 2 Kd1 (or Kf1) Ne3 is mate. Pretty, but not hard.

 

I can only imagine that white knew he was lost, and that e.g. Kd1 would just be a protracted loss (black is the exchange up) and so give black the pleasure of a pretty mate.
