Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #244

February 24, 2017

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


Black to play and mate White



White’s King is in a net, and the question is, how to “get to him”? The Nf4 prevents Be6 mate; i.e. the N is tied to defending e6.

So 1….Rd3! and if 2 Nd3, 2…Be6 mate.



What I failed to see is how to beat 2 Rc1: I assumed 2…Ra3 “and wins” but 2….Na3mate is better!




3r2k1/1p4pp/2p5/pnP2b2/2K2N1P/P4P2/5BP1/7R b – – 0 1
