Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #77

August 15, 2016

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


Black to play and mate White.


Euwe v Reti, Amsterdam 1920


The first move is obvious, 1…Bh3! 2 Qa8[]. After a moment's thought, seeing that the slow double attack 2…Qg4 fails to 3 Qe8+, one sees that a forcing move is needed: 2…Bc5+, and after 3 Kh1[] (3 Kf1? Qf2 mate) 3…Bg2+! and it is check, check and mate: 4 Kg2[] Qg4+ 5 Kf1 (5 Kh1 Qf3 mate) Qf3+ 6 Ke1[] Qf2 mate.
