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

 

Solution

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!


2…Qe5

3Nc7+! 


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


FEN
 rn2kb1r/1b1n1pp1/4p3/1N2q1Bp/3N2Q1/8/PPP3PP/2KR3R w kq -0 1
