Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #142

October 27, 2016

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


White to play and mate Black


Kasparyan v Manveljan, Yerevan 1939



I think I must have seen this position before, since the ‘pattern’ came quickly to me: 1 Rc6! Bc6 2 Qc4+ Kb7 3 Qc6+! – the key.


After 3…Kc6[] 4 Ne5+ Kc5 5 Nd3+ Kd4[] 6 Kd2 and mate next move by 7 c3.



2q4r/2p4p/kpnp2p1/p2b4/P6Q/1PR2NP1/2P3BP/2K5 w – – 0 1
