Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #175

December 2, 2016
Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”.
Black to play and mate White
Freze v Schröder, Maribor 1951
For a while, I couldn’t work out if it was White or Black to play and win, and wrongly worked on it being White. The book doesn’t show the side to move. Failing to find a win for White, I turned to Black being the victor, and immediately find the fairly standard win: 1….Ne4! wins at least a piece, since 2 Bd8 is mated by 2….Bb4+ etc.
