Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #59

July 29, 2016

Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”.


Black to play and win


Rotlewi v Rubinstein, Lodz 1907



Part of my chess education, and doubtless that of many of my readers.

Rubinstein’s “Immortal”, analysed in depth elsewhere, so I won’t repeat, and just give the main moves: 1..Rc3 2 gh Rd2! 3 Qd2 Be4+ 4 Qg2 Rh3 0-1.

Doubtless a happy hour or more could be spent looking at all the variations.
