Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #356

June 20, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Kijukin v Giergiel, USSR 1971



This is almost a study position, because everything ‘works’. It is a long mainline, but quite linear, so I was pleased to be able to see it through to the end.
1 g6 fg 2 Re6! Qh4
3 Rc6+ Kb4[] 4 a3+ Ka4[] 5 Rc4+! bc[] 6 Bc6 mate.
