Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #350

June 13, 2017

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

 

White to play and mate Black

3501

Csom v Ghitescu, Siegen 1970

 

Solution

Either of two moves wins: 1 Be7 and 1Ne8+ followed by 2 Be7: the N is tied to defending d8, and so the Bishop can’t be captured.

I prefer 1 Ne8+, since there are then fewer variations.

3502

FEN

8/3P1pkp/2n2Np1/8/5b2/B6P/5PP1/6K1 w – – 0 53
