Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #329

May 21, 2017

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

 

White to play and mate Black

3291

O’Kelly v Cornelis, Brussels 1967

Solution

A nice puzzle: 1 Ne7+ and if 1…Kh8, 2 Rh4! is nice; but

3292

1…Kf8 2 Qc5! Qb6 (say)

3293

and 3 Nc8+! (3 Rd8+ also wins, but not prettily) Qc5 4 Rd8 mate.

3294

A nice echo on Bronstein’s finish in puzzle number 314.

FEN

1r1r2k1/5pp1/7q/p2N3Q/2pR4/4P3/nP3PPP/5RK1 w – – 0 1
