Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #171

November 28, 2016
Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”.
White to play and mate Black
Jeroström v Noedal, 1950
Clearly, mate involves the a2-g8 diagonal, so the task is to ‘open it’. Examine all biffs leads to 1 Ng6+! fg[] 2 Qg8+!! Kg8[] 3 Ne7+ Kf8[] 4 Ng6 mate, a single, all forced, line.
