♔♞♙ Chess Puzzle of the Day

*** Black to play and checkmate ***

The black pieces are a little invasive and although they lack complete development, white pieces suffer from a similar evil, and to make matters worse, they are on the ropes in this position. White threatens to simplify with Nxf6+, relieving the pressure, but it is Black's turn and he can avoid it by following a continuation where White is powerless. Enough talk, the problem is more or less simple, solve it!

Do you want to exercise your tactical skills a little? Then solve this chess puzzle. Indicate the correct move and a full continuation. If you want, you can point out the tactical motives and other patterns present.

*** Juegan negras y dan mate ***

Las piezas negras están un poco invasivas y aunque les falta completar su desarrollo, de un mal similar sufren las blancas, y para peor, pues están contras las cuerdas en esta posición. Las blancas amenazan con simplificar con Cxf6+, aliviando la presión, pero es turno de la negras y lo pueden evitar siguiendo una continuación donde las blancas están impotentes. Basta de palabrerías, el problema es más o menos sencillo. ¡Resuélvelo!

So You are professor In Computer Science? Which branches do You like? Algorithms/graphs/automata theory/networks/operating systems/logic/etc?
I study math but I'm quite into graph theory and discrete math.
Do You prefer Windows or Linux? Sorry if questions are too personal but I like to know who is my friend :)

Yes, algorithms and programming is my thing. I'm also a Linux user as I am a open source software fan!

Nice to hear that. I've just started reading book about usage of Eliptic Curves in Cryptography. I really appreciate that You are into open software. I'm stuck to Windows - I'm a little bit afraid to install linux for a first time alone, and I cant check time with a friend so he can show me it. My PC is also to weak to run Linux with satisfiable performance on Virtual Machine.
