Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #348

June 11, 2017

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


White to play and win


Dukic v Tomasevic, 1969



Quite an unusual, and pretty way to win: 1 Qg8! hits the LPDO Rh7, and exploits the fact that the Rd8 is tied to the Nd7, because the Black king is in a net. The words in bold are all CJS Purdy’s language.

Black is forced to play 1…Rf7, when exchanging twice on d7 wins the rook.


Black doesn’t have a perpetual, so White will consolidate and win.


3r4/1p1nk2r/3Rpp1B/p1p2q1P/2P5/P5Q1/1P3P2/K2R4 w – – 0 1
