Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #380

July 17, 2017

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

Black to play and mate White


Oliveria v Pereira, Portugal 1974


To see all the sequence in a game would be a feat (for me) but 1..Ne4+! is obvious for a puzzle, and the lines aren’t too hard. 2 Ke3 Qg5+ is the start. White has various defences, all met in similar fashion, the Q, R and B combining to mate. I’ll leave it to my readers to work through some of White’s defences to see they can each be overcome (as I say, by check, check, check…until mate).
