Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #163

November 20, 2016
Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”.
White to play and mate Black
Horvat v Udovčić, Zagreb 1948
Examine all biffs quickly leads to 1 Ng6+!, and once it is noted that the Bd7 is pinned by the Rc7, after 1…fg, the Pe6 is LPDO, so 2 Qe6+ is terminal: 2…Kf8[] 3 Qe7 mate.
Black’s only other try is 1….Ke8, but 2 Qe6+!!
2…fe (2…Be6 3 Re7 mate) 3 Re6+ Kf7 (3…Bd7 4 Re7 mate) 4 Re7 mate.
1r1r4/p1RbkppB/1qp1pn2/4N3/P1P5/8/4QPPP/4R1K1 w – – 0 1
