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

3451

Geller, Efim v Ostojic, Preadrag, Belgrade 1969

Solution

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.

3452

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