Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #57 (2)

July 27, 2016

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

Or, in fact, a further puzzle from yesterday’s game.

White to play and win



Duras v Olland, Karlsbad 1907



Duras played the prosaic 1 Nf4, bringing another piece into the game, eyeing h5 (if the B moved there) or d5 and f6: So 1-0 after 1…Rh8 2 Nd5 and a few more moves.

But he missed mate in 3.

1 Bf8+! Bh5[] 2 Qh5+! gh[] 3 Rh6 mate.
