Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #24

June 23, 2016

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

White to play and win

Mackenzie v unknown, Manchester 1889

Solution

This seems familiar to another classic from the 19th century or earlier, where Qd8+/Bd2-a5+/O-O-O or something similar mates Black.

1 Re5+! de 2 Qe5+!

242

Qe5 3 Bc6+! Rc6 4 Rd8 mate.
