Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #201

December 29, 2016

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


White to play and mate Black


Nikitin v Butkevic, Moscow 1955



White’s position is quite desperate, so desperate measures are needed: and the only try is to play Bh7+ and promote.

So, 1 Nf5! Re2[] 2 Ne7+, 3 Bh7+ etc 1-0.
