Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #489

November 9, 2017

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


White to play and win


Cepunatjis v G;janee, Leningrad 1980



The motif is fairly obvious, 1 Qf6 Rg8, with the only difficulty being to break down Black’s resistance. Since there are ideas of Nh6+ hg Qh4 mate in the position, 2 Re6! forces 2…Qe6, when 3 Ng6+ overloads the f-pawn. Black loses his queen.
