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

Easier Problem - Black To Play

20180623 - Problem 1.jpg
r2qkb1r/pp3pp1/2pp2p1/4n3/P1BQP1P1/2N5/1PP2PP1/R1B2RK1 b kq - 0 1


Sub-optimal is an immediate 1...Qh4? because of 2.f3! and the certain win has slipped away. So 1...Nf3 has to be played in preparation for what follows.

2.gxf3 Qh4

There's no defense against 3...Qh2# unless you're a chess app and want to die tired, like mine does, e.g. 3.Bxf7+ Kxf7 4.Bh6 Rxh6 5.Qc4+ d5 6.Qxd5+ cxd5 7.b3 Qh2#

More Challenging Problem - White To Play

20180623 - Problem 2.jpg
1R6/8/8/8/6K1/7p/5p1k/B7 w - - 0 1

1. Be5+ Kh1 2. Rb1+ Kg2 3. Rb2 h2 4. Bd4

Tempting is 4.Bxh2, hoping for 4...Bxh2 5.Rxf2 for the easy win, but Black has 4...Kh1!
5.Rb1+ (Not 5.Rxf2?? Stalemate) Kg2 6.Ra1 f1=Q 7.Rxf1 Kxf1 and draw

5.Rxf2+ Kg1
6.Kg3 for the win.

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.
