Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #418

August 29, 2017

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


Black to play and mate White



Betjonski v Pirogov, Moscow 1975


The Marshall wins (I would bet good money the position arose from a Marshall).

1…Re1! and mate or ruinous material loss occurs.


If 2 Qe1 2…Qh5 mate; 2 Re1 Qg2 mate.
