Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #407

August 17, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Novozenjin v Panfilov, Vladimir 1975


A nice variation on a standard theme: 1 Qh6+! gh[] 2 Rf6+


2…Kh5 3 Rh6 mate; or 2…Kg7 3 Bh6+ and 4 Rf8 mate.

Very elegant how they both end in a tidy mate.


5R2/6pp/p4pk1/4Pb2/8/4QPKP/3B4/r2q4 w – – 0 1
