Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #169

November 26, 2016
Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”.
Black to play and win
Prins v Sultanbejev, Hastings 1949
(I am assuming Black was Sultan Khan; but can’t find the game in Megabase; so have left the spelling as in the puzzle book)
Once I had decided who was to play (the book does not say so, leaving it to the reader to work out), it wasn’t too hard: 1….Qf2! breaks White’s defences.
However, Fritz prefers 1….Ng1!: giving it as -3 compared to -2 for 1…Qf2, giving White the ‘save’ 2 Rg6+: but he is still lost.
6k1/1Q3p2/5qp1/4p3/1P6/8/P3n1RP/5rRK b – – 0 1
