Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #334

May 26, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Nyman v Hale, correspondence 1968



In a sense, a one mover: 1 Re7! disrupts Black’s coordination, so that on either capture, it is mate on f8 or h7. So all that needs to me done is check that Black’s checks are mere spite checks, which is all they are.
