Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #477

October 27, 2017

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

Black to play and mate White


DeCarbonel v Berliner, correspondence 1980


1…c3 is a natural try:


First of all, one must check if White can capture the LPDO Queen: he can’t.

2 Qd5 cb+ 3 Rb2[] Rf1+ mates.




So the only thing which remains is to see if White has a perpetual or a save: 1 Qe8+ Kh8 2 Qe7+ Bg7 3 bc:


3…Qd6 seals the deal.



7k/8/3N2p1/3q2Pp/2pbQ2P/5r2/PP6/KR6 b – – 0 1
