Daily chess puzzle #485

November 4, 2017

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

Gümrükcüoglü v Conevares, Malta 1980
Not too hard today, since it is a fairly standard Sicilian attack. 1Nd5

1…ed 2Qh5 and if the queen is captured, Rg3 mate, or if not, Qh6 mates. And 1…Nf6 2Nf6+ Kg7 3Qh7mate. 
Or 1…h6 2Ne7+ Kh7[] 3Bc3 and wins. 

2r2rk1/1b3p1p/p2ppBp1/2q4n/4P3/1BN2R1Q/PPP3PP/5R1K w – – 0 1
