Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #200

December 27, 2016

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

 

Black to play and mate White

Solution

The first few moves are obvious, and Black also has the crutch of a perpetual check to rely on, if he wants to.

So, 1…Qe3 2fe Ng3+ 3 Kh2[] Nf1++ 4 Kh1[]

That’s as far as Black needs to visualise, since he can now Ng3+ Nf1+ Ng3+ to his heart’s content; but it isn’t too hard to see that moving the N to e4 also threatens Nf2 mate, so forcing g2-g3:

4…Ng3+ 5 Kh2[] Ne4+ 6 g3

and now Rf2+ and Ng3 mate.

r4rk1/1pbb2pp/p1p1p2q/2Pp4/1P1Pn3/P3B2P/2Q1BPP1/R4RNK b – – 0 1
