Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #67

August 6, 2016

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

 

White to play and mate Black

671

Alekhine v Pratt, Paris 1913

Solution

The first move is obvious, given it is a puzzle, and the line is fairly linear thereafter. 1 Qh5+ Nh5 2 fe+ Kg6[] 3 Bc2+

672

3…Kg5 4 Rf5+ etc – Rf6+/Rg6+/Re4+ and eventually a pawn move mates.
