5 Mating Pattern Puzzles from Daily Games (Black)

Last week I posted some mating pattern puzzles from daily games as White (see here).

This week I want to give you some puzzles as Black. As before, I recommend that after solving them you also click through the whole game to see the alternatives etc.

PUZZLE 1

Let's start with a relatively simple one from a recent Sicilian Defense cup.

PUZZLE 2 

Next, here's another game from the same Sicilian Defense cup which turns into someting akin to a Marshall Attack.

PUZZLE 3

Continuing with the same theme, this game is from the recent Marshall Attack tournament I've blogged about here. White plays an experimental move (9. Bxd4) and goes down fast.

PUZZLE 4

This is from a Slav tournament where I play London-style with Black.

PUZZLE 5

The final one is from a Ponziani tournament, against a strong opponent, and is one of my favorite games.

 

I hope you've enjoyed them! Please let me know in the comments.

Best,

Indrek
