Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #378

July 12, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Hartston v Whiteley, 1974



A puzzle I’d seen before, maybe in my childhood, when Bill Hartston was at the forefront of British chess.

1 Qg8+ Rf8[] 2 Qg6+!


Qg6[] 3 Ree7+ Kd8[] 4 Rbd7 mate.


Hopefully Andrew Whiteley smiled at the prettiness of the finale.
