Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #386

July 24, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Klee v Hess, Bad Salzingen 1974


Not too hard, and there are two ways to win: the move I chose, 1 Qf7+, which Komodo prefers too, and 1 Rh7, as played in the game. Both have the same aim of mating on the h-file.

The game was 1 Rh7 Qe6 2 Be6 Kh7 3 Bf7 1-0 due to 4 Rh1 mating.
