Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #26

June 25, 2016

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

White to play and win

Schlecter v Meitner, Bec 1889

 

Solution

 

The main idea is easy to see: Kh2 to smother the King, then Bf2 mates, but some preparation is needed. The deflection 1 Qh6+! Qh6 puts the Black Q on a useless square, then 2 Kh2 and 3 Bf2 mate.
