Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #106

September 20, 2016

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


White to play and mate Black


Spielmann v Honlinger, Bec 1929



A ‘standard’ motif, but nice nevertheless to work out the correct order of moves to achieve the aim.

1 Ne7+! Qe7[] (1…Kh8 2 Qf8 mate) 2 Qh7+! Kh7[] 3 Rh5+ Kg8[] 4 Rh8 mate. In the game, Black resigned after 1 Ne7+.

I haven’t heard of Baldur Hoenlinger, but the game was the 8th of a match against Rudolf Spielmann. The five games from the match on Megabase were +3 =2 to Spielmann.
