Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #332

May 24, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Karasev v Klaman, Leningrad 1967



A nice one today. My first thought was 1 Rg6, but 1…Rg8 or 1…f5defends, so after a while I found the decoy 1 Re6!, removing the Queen from defending f7 (or defending g7 after 1…f5).
1…Qd8[] 2 Rg6! now works.
2…Rg8[] 3 Rf7 and Black can make a few checks, but they peter out.
