Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #157

November 13, 2016
Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”.
White to play and win
Unzicker v Wüst, Bavarska 1946
A nice puzzle: the aim is easy to see, divert the Nd7 from protecting b8, but the winning mechanism took me a while to see.
1 Rd7! Kd7 (1…Rd7 2 Qb8 mate)
2 Nf6+!
3 Qg4 mate.
