Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #255

March 9, 2017

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


Black to play and mate White


Uhlmann v Dely, 1962


Quite nice, though not too hard: 1…Qg2! and 2 Rg2[] Re1+ mates.



4r2k/p1p3rp/1p3B2/8/2P2P2/PP1Q1P1q/7P/6RK w – – 0 1

Post Script

The game seems a bit harsh on Wolfgang Uhlmann. Megabase doesn’t include it, but does include his six, mainly short, victories against Peter Dely [though the 1964 23 mover seems odd, the final position being equal).
