Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #165

November 22, 2016
Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”.
Black to play and mate White
Borisenko v Aramanović, Kujbišev 1948
1…e2! is a standard double attack and White is overwhelmed: 0-1.
1…Qd1 2 Qd1 e2 also works, and was my first thought, since after 3 Qd8+ Bf8 White has no more checks other than the desperado 4 Qf8+ after which Black’s pawn promotes. But 1…e2 is prettier.
1n4k1/p5bp/4N1p1/1P6/PP2B3/4p3/3q1rPP/3RQ2K b – – 0 1
