Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #194

December 21, 2016

Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”.


White to play and mate Black


Abolsky v Rosso, Buenos Aires 1954



1 Rf7! is the pretty first move, though my engine says that 1 Ne6 is also 1-0.  If 1…Bf7 then 2 Rg6+ and mates.


If 1…Bh6, then 2 Ne6 Kf7 3 Bd5 is gruesome; or 2 Bd5 is Fritz’s choice.
