Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #18

June 17, 2016

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

White to play and win

181

Anderssen v Zukertort, Bremen 8/8/1869

Solution

Fairly obvious: 1 Qh7+ and Black did the ungentlemanly thing of resigning, rather than letting Anderssen mate him: 1…Kh7 2 g8(Q)+! Rg8 3 f6+! and mates (e.g. 3…Kh6 4 Rh3 mate).
