Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #369

July 3, 2017

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


Black to play and mate White


Andersson v Hartston, Hastings 1972/73


1…Bh3+! and if 2 Kh3, 2…Qf1 mate.



8/1pQ2pk1/q3bn1p/p3p1p1/1P2P3/P1P1BPP1/2B3KP/8 b – – 0 36


When I wrote this posting, I was puzzled since the position wasn’t quite as I had recollected from childhood. In end August 2017, Chess Today published the puzzle on Bill Hartston’s birthday; then, issue CT6131, Ken Neat wrote in to say the diagram is wrong. The finish was more spectacular.
