Chess Thread 07-07-2018

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

Easier Problem - White To Play (Ch. 1018 )

Hint: Make Black react to the promotion threat

4r3/1rN2Pkp/3p2p1/6Pn/1p2P3/1Ppq4/P5RP/5R1K w - - 0 1

1.Ne6+ Rxe6

Or if 1...Kh8 then 2.fxe8=Q#.

Mate in 2.

More Challenging Problem - White To Play

1.Bxe5! Qd7

Black must not take the bishop: 1...Qxe5?? 2.Qd8+ Nxd8 3.Rxd8+ Re8 4.Rxe8+ Bf8 5.Rfxf8#

2.Bxb8 Qxd2
3.Rxd2 Bd4

And White has won a rook.

(Note that once again, Black should not take the bishop: 3...Nxb8? 4.Rd8+ Re8 5.Rxe8+ Bf8 6.Rxc8 and now White is up by two rooks.)

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.
