Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #203

December 31, 2016

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

Black to play and mate White


Druganov v Panteleev, correspondence 1956


It is fairly ‘easy’ to see what must be done: find a way to clear the b1-h7 diagonal and the b3 square, so that Nb3check can be mate: but how to do it? Especially because White threatens mate in 1.

Eventually I saw the one and one path

1…Qd1+! 2 Rd1[] Ne2+! 3 Be2[] Nb3 mate.

I have recently upgraded to ChessBase14, and from now, will add puzzles to a Cloud database- or, at least, will give it a try, to see if it works.
