Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #99

September 11, 2016

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




Gilg v Mueller, Keckemet 1927



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.


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.
