Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #480

October 30, 2017

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

 

White to play and mate Black

4801

Garcia P v John Van der Wiel, Kastrikjum 1980

Solution

Not too hard today: 1 Rf5! is a natural try, threatening to capture on f8, or if 1…ef or 1…gf, 2 Qe5+ and mate. And if 1…Re2, then 2 Rf8+ and 3 Rg8mate.

So 1…Rf5 when 2 Qe5+! all the same, and if 2…Re5 3 Bf6 mate.

4802

FEN

2b2r1k/p6p/4p1pN/3pRpB1/8/6P1/Pr2QP1P/q4BK1 w – – 0 1
