Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #293

April 16, 2017

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

 

White to play and win

2931

Kirjakov v Zuravljev, Riga 1965

 

Solution

The game move, 1 Rf1! is spectacular, but I chose the more prosaic 1 Qh6! which Komodo says is equally strong, both +5:  Check/check/check and a black rook falls off.

FEN

5r2/p6p/1p3k2/2p1rq1Q/3pR3/8/PPPK4/7R w – – 0 1
