Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #248

February 28, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Grunspan v Kaminski, Poznan 1961


Not too hard, because there aren’t too many ways White could prosecute an attack. 1 e6! is the natural move; 1…fe?? is clearly bad, 2 Rg7+ etc; so the only sensible move is 1…Ne6, when 2 Qe6! is the point of the combination.

Then, White is at least a piece up.


If the Q is captured, 3 Rg7+ and 4 Ng6 mate.


q4rk1/2nR1pp1/n6p/2p1PQ2/p1P2P1N/Pr2PN2/5K1P/B7 w – – 0 1
