Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #420

August 31, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Bach v Botto, Tjentiste 1975


1 Rg6! fg (1…Qc3 2 Qh7+! 3 Rh6+ 4 Rg1+ and mate) 2 hg Rf7


I now played the prosaic 1 gf, but in the game there was the spectacular 1 Qf8+! which took me a while to see why it worked.


It is mate in two: Rh7+ and Nh6 mate. Pretty
