Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate # 46

July 15, 2016

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

White to play and mate Black (or win, in some lines; but in others there are fairly pretty mates)



Schlechter v Gunsberg, Monte Carlo, 1901



Sacrificing on d5 is obvious. 1 Nd5 Rd5 2 Rd5 Bf7 3 Qf7+ Rf7 4 Rd8 1-0


There are other lines. 1…Bh5 2 Nf6+ Kh8[] 3 Rh5+ Bh6[] 4 Rh6+ Kg7 5 Ne8+ Kh6 6 Rh3 mate.

Or 1…Rd5 2 Rd5 Rd5 3 Bd5+ Qd5 4 Qe8 +-; not mate, so not quite in tune with the book’s title, but a convincing 1-0.
