Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #132

October 17, 2016

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


Black to play and mate White (though White can prolong the game, with a lost position)


Zuravljev v Koskin, SSSR 1936


Fairly standard Dragon stuff: 1…Nf3! 2 Nf3 (2 Qg2 say would prolong the game, but 0-1 with two pawns down) Ne4 (or 2…Rb2+ 3 Kb2 Ne4 and the pin decides)


3 Ne4 Rb2+ 4 Kb1, and now the pretty move 4…Rb1+! 0-1




1r1q1rk1/p2bppbp/3p1np1/4n3/3NP1P1/2N1BP2/PPPQ3P/1K1R1B1R b – – 0 13
