Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #366

June 30, 2017

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

 

White to play and mate Black

3661

Müller v Pichler,  Umag 1972

 

Solution

1 Ngh6+ gh 2 Qg4+ Kh8[] is obvious, but what then?
3662
After some thought, I saw 3 Rg7! which threatens 4 Rg8 mate, and if the Bishop moves, 4 Rh7+! clears the way for 5 Qg7 mate.
