Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #31

June 30, 2016

Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”. Starting today, I am changing the “…to play and..” to “…mate” since it appears all the problems in this book end in mate. If that changes, as I get further into the book, I will revert back.

White to play and mate Black


Pollock v Konzultanti 1893

(presumably “Konzultanti” means consulting amateurs)


Pretty, though so picturesque I wonder if it is “made up”.

1 Qd7+! Bd7[] 2 Nd6+


2…Kd8[] 3 Nf7+ Kc8[] 4 Re8+


4…Be8[] 5 Rd8 mate.
