Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #399

August 8, 2017

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

Black to play and mate White


Andersson v Knutsson, Stockholm 1974


Not too hard today, the position being a variation of the motif often seen in puzzle books, but with White playing 1 Qd8+, Bg5+ or Ba5+ and Rd8 mate.

Here, 1…Qd1+ 2 Kd1 Bg4++ 3 K moves Rd1 mate.
