Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #216

January 26, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Ivkov v Eliskases, Municl Olympiad 1958 (1)



Quite like the famous Torre-Lasker back rank mate repeated “sacrifice” of the Q.

1 Qd2! Qa8 2 Qa5! and say 2…Qd8 3 Qc7 1-0


In the game, Black played 1…Qf8, and lost after 2 Qe3.



3q2k1/1br2ppp/8/1Pp1R3/8/2Q3PB/5P1P/6K1 w – – 0 30

(1) the book says Monte Carlo, but I will go with Megabase.
