Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #204

January 14, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Forintos v Tomovic, 1957


A pretty one. I suspect I have seen it before, since the solution was obvious, including the nice final coup.

1 Rh8+ Kh8 (1…Kg6 is straightforward: 2 Bd3+ Qd2+) 2 Qf8+ Kh7[] 3 Bd3+ g6 (or Black can thrown in desperados such as Be4)


4 Qf7+ Kh8[] 5 Qf8+ Kh7[]


6 Bg6+! the nice final coup 6…Kg8 7 Qg8 mate.





3R4/1p3ppk/1p5p/rB2P3/PQ4P1/5b1K/1P5P/6q1 w – – 0 1
