Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #335

May 27, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Zilberstein v Dementjev, Groznij 1968



What opening was this from? Must have been a King’s Indian Attack.
The final moves are nice, and a motif I don’t recall seeing before. 1 Nf6+ Kh8 2 Ne8! and either capture leads to mate, or 2…Kg8 is met by 3 Nc7 and mate soon.
