Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #491

November 11, 2017

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


White to play and mate Black


Szilagyi v Busa, correspondence, Hungary 1980



This is very similar to ‘one I have seen earlier’, and the motif is the same: clear the d file so that Rd8 mate can be played, or clear the e line instead. 
So 1 Nc7+! 

Qc7[] 2 Ne6!



Qc7 4 Qe2+! Ne5 5 Qe5+! Qe5 6 Rd8 mate.
