Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #221

February 1, 2017

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

 

Black to play and mate White

2211

Honan v Mandle, corres 1959

Solution

A slight variation on a standard theme: 1…Qg2+! is a nice first move, forcing 2. Qg2, when 2…Ng3+! forces 3 hg, after which 3…Rh8 is mate.

2212

FEN

6r1/1bp1kp2/p7/1p2P1q1/3pn3/NB5Q/PPP2bPP/R4R1K b – – 0 1
