Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #215

January 27, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Kobr v Bohac, Czechoslovakia 1958



“Not too hard” …provided you see it, which fortunately I did, instantly. It is perhaps a standard decoy idea: 1 Qa4! and if 1…Qa4 2 Bc5 is mate.


In CJS Purdy terms, the Qa5 is tied to c5, and the Ke7 is in a net.
