Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #397

August 6, 2017

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

Black to play and mate White



Fairly easy today. The first move to consider is 1…Nf3+, and it is overpowering.  If 2 Kh1 then 2…Qd3 wins, but nicer is 2…Qd6 as played in the game, 3 g3 Qd3 4 Kg2


4…Qf1+! 5 Kf1[] Bh3 mate (in the game, Black played 5..Re1+ and 6…Rg1 mate)




1r2r1k1/Q1pq1ppp/8/4n3/6b1/3P4/PP3PPP/RNB2RK1 b – – 0 1
