Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #137

October 22, 2016

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


White to play and mate Black


Morra v Rossolimo, Nice 1937



I presume this game was between the two players for whom variations in the Sicilian defence are named after? I have not been able to find the game itself in Megabase or elsewhere to help corroborate this supposition.

Anyway, straightforward, since examine all biffs quickly leads to 1 Qh5+! gh[] 2 g6+ Kg6[] 3 Rg1+ and mate.
