Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #441

September 21, 2017

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

Black to play and mate White

Jurjev v Tischler, Moscow 1977
1…Qf5! exploits the pinned Be4 and LPDO Qc2. Then say 2 Nc3 Rfe8 adds to the pressure, 3 Re1 Re4! 4 Ne4 Re8 and control is complete.

5 g4 Re4! is a cute finale: 6 gf Re1 mate.
