Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #220

January 31, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black



Gligoric v Nievergeld, Zurich 1959


A nice little ‘tictac’ solves this: 1 Nf5+ and 1…ef 2 ef+ Kf8


3 Rc6! 1-0; mate on d8 next move.

The game has some interesting annotations in Megabase 2017.
