Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #412

August 23, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Meyer v Freyer, correspondence 1975



The first moves are obvious, the only question is what to play after them: 1 Rh8+! Kh8[] 2 Qf8+ Ng8 (2…Rg8? 3 Qh6mate or 3 Rh1mate).


3 Bg6! seals the win. If 3…Rg6 4 Rh1+ mates. Black can grovel with 3…Rh7! 4 Bh7 Nc6! but then White is an exchange and pawn up, and has the compensation too.
