Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #84

August 22, 2016

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

Black to play and mate White.


Serbasin v Sozin, Novogorod 1923



The first problem in the book that I totally failed with: 1…Qb6!! is the stunning first move. Of course, I had similar motifs in my mind (the b line, the jump-check Rb1, the jump-check Bh6-c1) but didn't have the imagination to see this move.


The move is a double attack. On the LPDO Be3 and LPDO Pb2: so 2 Bb6 Ne2 mate.
