Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #126

October 10, 2016

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

 

White to play and mate Black

1261

Capablanca v unknown

 

Solution

Another nice puzzle.

1 Nf6! and the Q can’t be taken because of 2 Nf7 mate; and the N can’t be taken because of 2 Qh7 mate, so 1…Ng8, when 2 Qh5+ Nh6[] 3 Qg6!

1262

and 3..Qg8[] 4 Nf6! is a nice echo.

1263

FEN

r1br1q1k/p3nQp1/1p2p3/2p3NN/7P/8/PPP2PP1/R5K1 w – – 0 1
