Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate # 78

August 16, 2016

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

Black to play and win


Hromadka v Samisch, Piestany 1922


I thought this puzzle was pretty. After seeing no easy way to take on f1 or f2, I saw, in CJS Purdy language, that the Rd2 was tied to defending f2, so can be overloaded with the lovely 1..Rd1! White's position collapses.


White resigned.
