Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #40

July 9, 2016

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

White to play and mate Black


Tietz v Rommig, Karlsbad 1898


Could this be a made up game?  Maybe not, but it does appear contrived: 1 Rc6! and if 1…Kc6 then a barrage of checks.

2 Qb5+!


2…Kb5 3 Ba4+ Ka4 4 Nc3+ Kb3[] 5 Nd2 mate.


If 3..Kc4 then 4 b3+ Kd3[] 5 Bb5+ Ke4[] 6 Rg4+ Kf5[] 7 Ne3 mate.
