Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #134

October 19, 2016

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

 

White to play and mate Black

1342

Znosko-Borowsky v unknown, 1937

 

Solution

Elementary today (but: forewarning: tomorrow’s will be far harder). 1 Qd4! and if 1…Nd4, 2 Nf6+ and 3 Bh6 mate.

1342

Best to take a rest, and get ready for tomorrow’s puzzle, which I found extremely tough, but very satisfying when solved…

FEN

r2qk2r/pppbnp1p/2np2p1/3N2B1/2BbP3/8/PPP2PPP/R2QK2R w KQkq – 0 1
