Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #289

April 12, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Walter v Bhend, Zurich 1964


1 Rd8+! is fairly obvious, noting that the Nc6 is tied to the Be7, so 1…Kd8[] is forced, when the pin on the Be7 by the Bg5 means that the Rf8 is LPDO; but more importantly the Qg4 is also LPDO so 2 Be7+ wins the Queen.
