Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #174

December 1, 2016
Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”.
White to play and mate Black
Cetković v Molerović, 1951
The LPDO Qa2 and the alignment of it on the second rank with the Qe2 (Purdy’s jump-biff) is key to the solution, plus Black’s king is in a net.
1 Bh7!! and if 1…Qe2, 2 Bh6 mate; so the Queen is lost.
