Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #185

December 13, 2016
Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”.
White to play and mate Black
Suta v Sutej, Bucharest 1953
A pretty variation of a standard theme: Black’s Queen has to be diverted from defending f7, so that Nf7 is mate.
1 Rg5! Qf6
2 Qd4!! 1-0. If 2…Rg6 then 3 Rg6 renews the threat.
