Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate # 88

August 28, 2016

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

White to play and mate Black.

 

 

Alekhine v Supiko, 1924

 

Solution

 

A pattern I had seen before: here, the fact that the rook had already been lifted to c3 is key. 1 Qg6! and if 1…fg 2 Ng6+! hg[] 3 Rh3+ and mates next move.
