Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #345

June 7, 2017

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


Black to play and mate White


Geller, Efim v Ostojic, Preadrag, Belgrade 1969


A standard deflection, due to the threat of back rank mate: 1..Qe4, 0-1. The fact that the Qe6 is LPDO is part of the rationale of why the solution works.


I’ve not heard of the player of the Black side: his brief Wikipedia entry:



6k1/5r1p/1pqpQ1p1/p7/2P2r2/1P1R4/P5PP/3R3K b – – 0 28
