Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate # 94

September 4, 2016

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


Black to play and mate White

Orajevski v Bubnov, 1926



This took me a while: I saw the initial moves immediately, but couldn't see the denouement for a good while. I think the final motif is unusual:

1…Nd3 2 Qc7 Bf2+ 3 Kh1[]

And now the idea which at first I struggled to see: 3…Ne1!, with the unstoppable threat of 4….Bg2 mate.
