Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #188

December 16, 2016

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



Black to play and win


Madsen v Napolitano, corres 1953


1…Re1+! 2 Re1[] when “chess is double attack” 2…Qd4+ overload the Q: 0-1.


Fritz also likes 1…Re2, when 2 Kf1 Qe8


It is almost zugzwang, and Black has a threat of 3…Rg2; or 3…Re1+ 4 Re1 Qe1 mate: so 0-1.


6k1/1p1qrpp1/p7/7p/PQ6/8/1PPp2PP/3R2K1 b – – 0 1
