Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #230

February 10, 2017

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

Black to play and mate White


Sugajev v Sevastjanov, Moscow 1960


The first move is elementary: 1…Rc1+, and if 2 Kc1 Ba3++  mates next move.

So 2 Kb2 :


and then a double clearance of squares, to enable Qc1 mate: 2…Bd4+; 3…Rb1+, and Black wins. White can play Ka3-b4 but gets mated by Ra8+and Qa5.



2r3k1/2q1pp2/6pp/1pbPP3/2r5/1Q3N2/P2RR1PP/1K6 b – – 0 1
