Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #298

April 21, 2017

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


Mikenas v  Bronstein, Tallinn 1965



Part of my (and I expect many player’s) chess education: 1…Ra3!!: a position often cited in textbooks.

In CJS Purdy terms, there is an x-ray attack by the Qe5 on the LPDO Ra1; and the White King is in a back rank mating net.
