Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate # 80

August 18, 2016

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

White to play and mate Black.

 

Capablanca v unknown, simultaneous 1923

 

Solution

First of all, you notice White is a Queen down, so it must be a series of checks. And it isn't too hard: 1 Nf6+ so that if 1…gf 2 Bf6 and the pinned Rf7 means that next move 3 Rh8 mate. So better is 1…Kf8 when 2 Rh8+ Ke7[] and now 3 Re8+! Re8[] 4 Rd7+ Kf8[] 5 Rf7 mate.
