Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #56

July 25, 2016

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

 

White to play and mate Black

561

Capablanca v Roublicek, New York 1907

 

Solution

Quite an elegant finish, a variant I have not seen before:

1 Ra7+ Qa7[] 2 Ra5! 1-0. The second move is nice.

562
