Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #307

April 30, 2017

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


Black to play and mate White


Hodjakov v Martinov, USSR 1965


A rest day today. 1…Rh1+ follower by another rook sac on h1 (2…Rf1+ and 3…Rh1+) clears the way for 4…Qf1+ and 5…Qg2 mate.
A variant of a familiar theme, often seen on the h-file. (And normally with Black and winning, to my recollection)?!


[FEN “5qk1/Qb6/p5p1/1pB5/3p1rP1/6PP/P1B3RK/5r2 b – -“]
