Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #119

October 3, 2016

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

 

White to play and mate Black

1191

Cost v Kruger, Konstanza 1933

 

Solution

I think this puzzle is a gem

The sheer efficiency of Q and B mating when Black has a Q defending, is artistry. Also, at each move, White has only one winning move, no deviations permitted.

I’ll just give a lot of diagrams to help my readers enjoy the ballet of the pieces.

Beautiful.
