Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate # 98

September 8, 2016

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

 

White to play and mate Black.

 

 

Spielmann v L'Hermet, Magdeberg 1927

 

Solution

I suspect I have seen this puzzle before, since I saw the solution, including the third move, instantly.

1 Qh6! gh 2 gh+ Kf8 (Black could grovel with 2…Qg5 to avoid the mate, but he is totally lost)

 

3 Rg8+!! Kg8[] 4 h7+ and mate next move.
