Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #305

April 29, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Sheinsweet v Bruner, San Juan 1965



1 Qh6+ is obvious, it being a puzzle from a book.  My engine says 1 Rg1 is also +-, simply bringing more pieces to the party.

1…Kh6 2 Nf5+ Kg5 and Komodo tells me that both 3 Be2 and 3 Rg1 are mate in four. I had chosen 3 f4+ which takes slightly longer.
