July 24, 2016

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

White to play and mate Black

Vidmar v Teichmann. Karlsbad 1907  (maybe, see below)

Solution

Fairly standard today: 1 Qh7+! Nh7[] 2 Rd8+! Nf8 3 Rh8+! Kh8[] 4 Rf8 mate.

551

“Maybe”

Megabase 2012 (my latest copy of Megabase) give a more prosaic ending: I suspect the puzzle book is a variation.
