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

3781

Hartston v Whiteley, 1974

 

Solution

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+!

3782

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

3783

Hopefully Andrew Whiteley smiled at the prettiness of the finale.

 

FEN

2r1k3/pR2nr1Q/3q4/P7/3p1p2/P1p3P1/7P/4R1K1 w – – 0 1
