Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #14

June 13, 2016

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

White to play and win

141

Steinitz v Nepoznati, Bec 1861

Solution

A nice play with the heavy pieces: 1 Rd8+! to deflect the queen from looking at e6, 2 Qe6+, and 3 Rh6+! forces 3…gh, so 4 Qf7 mate.

Pretty.
