Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #76

August 14, 2016

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


White to play and mate Black


Adams v Torre, New Orleans 1920



Another position from my chess education, and doubtless known to most of my readers.

1 Qg4! Qb5[] (tied to the Re8) 2 Qc4!! Qd7 (ditto) 3 Qc7!! Qb5 (ditto)


4 a4! (4 Qb7?? Qe2! would have spoiled everything) Qa4[] 5 Re4! Qb5[] 6 Qb7! 1-0 since Black no longer has the Q*e2 resource.
