Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #336

May 28, 2017

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

 

White to play and mate Black

3361

Paar v Whitecroft, Netherlands, 1968

 

Solution

Not too hard: the LPDO Qa4 and the jump-biff Qd7-a4 in the puzzle position provide the rationale for 1 Rh5; so that 1…Qd7 is met by 2 Ng5+ and 3 Rh6 mate.

3362
