Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate # 89

August 29, 2016

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

 

Black to play and mate White.

 

 

Unknown v Stoner, Sad 1924

 

Solution

 

A pretty variation of a standard theme of back rank mating (or back file mating). Black has to open the h file and does so forcibly by 1….Rh2+! 2 Bh2 Ng3+!!

 

3 Bg3[] Qh8+ 4 Bh2 Qh2+! 5 Kh2[] Rh8+

 

and after 6 Qh5 Rh5 mate.

A nice exercise.
