Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #451

October 11, 2017

Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”.  
White to play and mate Black

Fuller v Steedman, Chester 1979
Quite pretty today. 
1 Ng6+ exploits the fact that 1…fg? 2 f7+ is terminal. 
So 1…Kg8[] when 2 Ne7+ Kh8[] 3 Qh6 Rg8

And now the coup de grace 4 Qg7+! 
4….Rg7[] 5fg is a very efficient mate.
