Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #246

February 26, 2017

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

 

White to play and mate Black

2461

Dragunov v Odrukovski, 1961

Solution

Not too hard, since h7 is the weak point in Black’s kingside, and the Qa5 is LPDO, so 1 Qh5 threatens a very nasty discovered check: 1-0.

2462

FEN

r1b1rbk1/pp1n1ppp/5p2/q4N2/1p1P4/2PB1Q2/P4PPP/R1B2RK1 w – – 0 1
