Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #355

June 19, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Kozlovska v Cardoso, Ohrid 1971



Not too hard, since the first few moves are obvious, given it is a puzzle position. 1 Qh7+ Nh7[] 2 Rh7+ Kh7[] 3 Rh3+
If 3…Kg6 4 Bh5+ and 5 Bf7 mate, so 3…Qh5, when 4 Bh5 mates either by withdrawing the bishop or playing Bf7+, depending on Black’s defence.
