November 25, 2016
Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”.
White to play and mate Black
1681
Ostropoljski v Ivanovski, SSSR 1949
Solution
Fairly standard: the aim, in Purdy terms, is to effect the jump-check Qd8 or Rd8.
So, 1 Qd7+! Rd7[] 2 Nc7+
1682
2…. Rc7[] 3 Rd8 mate.
FEN
4kb1r/pr1p1ppp/2p5/1N2P1B1/q3n3/P7/1P1Q1PPP/3RK2R w Kk – 0 1
