Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #227

February 7, 2017

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


Black to play and mate White


Gaprindashvili v Nedeljkovic, Kiev 1959



Not too hard: White’s Queen is tied to the back rank, and his King is in a mating net, so, 1…Rc8! overloads the Queen.

And if 2 Bc4, as played in the game, 2…Rc4 continues the overload.
