Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #116

September 30, 2016

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


White to play and mate Black


Rees v Klarwatter, Rotterdam 1932



Optically hard to see, but as soon as you see it, it is 1-0.

1 Qd8!


Very pretty. My engine tells me that Black is winning after every single other move White can make.
