Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #268

March 22, 2017

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


Black to play and mate White


Pomanjenko v Kurbatov, Harkov 1963


The first move, clearing the diagonal isn’t hard: 1..Ne1+ (my engine says 1…gh+ and 2…Ne1 are nearly equivalent).  2 Be1 e3+ 3 Kg1 Qf2+! and 0-1.



2r3k1/pp6/2b4p/4br2/4p1pq/5n1P/PPP1BBK1/R1Q2N1R b – – 0 1
