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 (967)

Goal: win some material
Hint: a discovered attack is key

2r2k2/1p2pp2/6p1/R6p/Pr2P2P/1Bb2P2/2P1K1P1/7R b - - 0 1

Intersectional Chess Pieces

I mean, why should a rook not be able to identify as a bishop?

(h/t Skip)

More Challenging Problem - White To Play (970)

Goal: White can force a checkmate in 5 or less
Hint: Black is terribly weak on the dark squares

Black can pick up the bishop:

2.Ra8 Rxa8
3.cxb3 wins


2.cxb3 Bxa5 also wins

More Challenging Problem - White To Play

To seal White's control of the dark squares.


The only virtue to this move, found by my app, is that it stretches it out to a 5 move mate. Both of the other lines are 4 or less:

A: (1...Qf7 2.Qe5+ Kd7 3.Qd6+ Kc8 4.Qd8#)
B: (1...Kf7 2.Qxh7+ Ke8 3.Qg8#)

2.Qxd8 f4
3.Qf6+ Kd7

or 4.Qe7+ Kc6 5.Qd6#


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 paste 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.
