Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #354

June 18, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Czerniak v Whiteley, 1971


1 Ng6+! and 1…fg more or less forced, else Ne7+ forks the king and queen.

Now since Black threatens mate in one (Qg2+), White must play forcing moves, i.e. here checks: so 2 Qh7+ Kh7[] 3 Rg7+ and mate in a couple of moves.
