Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #323

May 15, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Minic v Kurajica, Batumi 1966


A nice puzzle: 1  Nh7+ is obvious, and Black as two moves.

1…Ke8 2 Nf6+ Kf8[[ 3 g6!!



1…Kg8 2 g6!!


which I think is a pretty and efficient use of a very few pieces: mate or promotion of the h pawn follows.


2r2k2/3R1p1p/5N1P/p4pP1/1p6/4p3/1PP5/1K6 w – – 0 1
