Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #408

August 18, 2017

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


Black to play and mate White



A position I knew: only recently I have been proof-reading Quality Chess’s forthcoming latest book on Tal, and the position is either in it, or I found it in Megabase when checking something.

1…Qg5! and the LPDO rook drops off because the Q is tied to defending it and e1, and can’t defend both.
