Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #288

April 11, 2017

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

 

Black to play and mate White

2881

Wheeler v Hall, England 1963

Solution

Harder today: to get the order right.  Eventually it all clicked: 1…Rc1+ first (though 1…Ra3+ first also wins) 2 Qc1 (else the Q drops) Ra3+

2882

and if 3 Kb1, then 3…Ra1+! and 4..Qa8+/5..Qa2 mate.

FEN

r5k1/5pbp/2rp2p1/8/3N1PP1/Pp6/1P1Q2qP/K2R3R b – – 0 1
