As always, the chess/dress pr0n tread is an open thread, so there is no such thing as an off-topic comment.


Easier Problem - White To Play (BWTC 9)

Hint: Black is weak on the back rank. Exploit it.

Easier Problem - White To Play


20180310 - Problem 1.jpg
6kr/1q2r1p1/1p2N1Q1/5p2/1P1p4/6R1/7P/2R3K1 w - - 0 1

White can force mate in 3 moves:

1.Rc8+ Qxc8 (of course, 1...Re8 is followed by 2.Rxe8#)
2.Qxg7+ Rxg7
3.Rxg7#

More Challenging Problem - To Play

20180310 - Problem 2.jpg
3r2k1/1p5p/6p1/p2q1p2/P1Q5/1P5P/1P6/5RK1 w - - 0 1

1.Rd1! Qxc4
2.Rxd8+ Kg7
3.bxc4 and White, being a rook up, should win the endgame.

Instead of 1...Qxc4, Black could try 1...Qf7, but then 2.Qxf7+ Kxf7 3.Rxd8 is pretty much the same result.

Hope to see you all next week!

Note: that cryptic line of letters and numbers you see underneath each board diagram is a representation of the position in what is known as "Forsyth-Edwards Notation", or F.E.N. It's actually readable by humans. Most computer applications nowadays can read FEN, so those of you who may want to study the position, you can copy the line of FEN and paste into your chess app and it should automatically recreate the position on its display board. Or, Windows users can just "triple click" on it and the entire line will be highlighted so you can copy and past it into your chess app.

So that about wraps it up for this week. Chess thread tips, suggestions, bribes, rumors, threats, and insults may be sent to my yahoo address: OregonMuse little-a-in-a-circle yahoo dott com.
