Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #411

August 22, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Medina v Sanz, Olot 1975


Nice today: 1 Nf5+ is fairly obvious, when 1…Kh5 is best. (If 1…gf, 2 Qf6+ and 3 Qg5 mate is trivial).

Then 2 Qh7+! Nh7[] 3 g4 mate is pretty.


2 g4+? Ng4+ (check!) spoils the party.



8/5Q1p/3N1npk/8/R4P2/P6P/6PK/4qr2 w – – 0 1
