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


O’Kelly v Cornelis, Brussels 1967


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


1…Kf8 2 Qc5! Qb6 (say)


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


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


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