Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #99

September 11, 2016

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

 

991

 

Gilg v Mueller, Keckemet 1927

 

Solution

Knowing it is a puzzle, I more or less immediately found 1g4!, winning-when checking on Chessbase, my engine says mate in 9: but it is clear that if 1..Be2 then 2 Rh5+ gh[] 3g5 mate.

992

This is the line given in the book, as if it they were the moves played in the game, but Megabase reveals the finish was far more prosaic: 1 Qf3 and winning less forcefully.

FEN position

In response to a request from one of my readers, I will from now on, wherever possible, paste the FEN position into my daily chess blogs.
