Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #343

June 4, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Penrose v Hnini, 1969 (not sure of the Black player’s name: written as typed in the book; but the book also had Penrode for White)



I think I may have seen this puzzle before, maybe because the winner is a former top English player.

1 Bg7+! 2 Rh7+! enables the Q to reach f7; then 4 f4! if necessary, to lock in Black’s King. 1 Qf7 is equivalent, playing 2 Bg7+!
