Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #391

July 30, 2017

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

Black to play and mate White



Fairly standard today: 1…Qc6 forces 2 Bf3 (the f pawn is pinned) when 2…Qf3! wins.


3 gf Rdg8+ 4 Bg3 Rg3+ 5 hg Bf3 and mate.


When entering the diagrams into Chessbase in order to print this blog, Komodo agrees that 1…Qc6 is winning, -4, but says that 1…Rdg8 is even “stronger”.


2kr3r/pb1n1p2/1q2pP2/1pb5/2p2B2/2N5/PPQ1BPPP/R4RK1 b – – 0 1
