Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #144

October 29, 2016

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

Black to play and mate White


Botvinnik v Stahlberg, Moscow 1940


Surprisingly, I can’t find this game: odd, given who the players are.

Not too hard today, because various sensible moves win. 1…Rg2 is given by Fritz as -12; 1…d4 -25; but 1…Rh3+ is mate in 6, after 2 gh d4!



5bk1/1p4p1/pP3p2/Pq1pnP2/8/1r5P/RN1Br1P1/2QR3K b – – 0 1
