Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate # 85

August 23, 2016

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

White to play and mate Black (with a twist)



Hartlaub v Walle, Bremen 1923




'Fairly' standard today: just a bit of calculation required to put the moves into order, and one pretty move at the end. For what I mean by 'fairly', see tomorrow's post.

1 Re7! Qe7[] 2 Rf6!

2… gf[] 3 Nf5



4 Qg5+! 1-0 since 4…gh 5 Nh6 mate.


Very pretty.




What's the twist?
