Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #281

April 4, 2017

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


Black to play and mate White


Zebenko v Kofman, SSSR 1964


1..Qa4!! is the move you have to look at, it being a problem book (though 1…Qf7 looks enormous too, hitting c4 as well as threatening Rg2)

2 Qa4 Nd3+ 3 Kd1[] and now the clearance 3…Ne3+! makes way for 4…Bg4+ 0-1.



2k2r2/pppq2p1/3pb3/4n1B1/N1PpP1nP/PQ6/1P3rB1/2R1K1R1 b – – 0 1
