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

And Moviegique's movie thread will be up later up this evening.

Easier Problem - White To Play (994)

Goal: White can force a mate in 4
Hint: Neither White's first move, nor the second, is a check

Naturally, Stuff Like This Never Happens To Me:

(h/t to many morons who brought this to my attention)

More Challenging Problem - White To Play (995)

There are a number of ways for White to win from this position. Which line is the fastest?

Goal: Queen the h pawn, don't trade it for the knight
Hint: Lure the knight away

Solutions Update

20190608 - Problem 1.jpg
1rbk2B1/p2p4/3p1Npp/1p2p3/4P3/3P4/PPn3PP/5R1K w - - 0 1

Pretty straightforward:

1.Nd5 Ke8

White was threatening Rf8#
2.Bh7 Bb7

This is almost a random move. There is no defense for what follows:

3.Bxg6+ Kd8

More Challenging Problem - White To Play

20190608 - Problem 2.jpg
5n2/pp3p2/4kN1P/3pP3/7P/1P1K4/P4P2/8 w - - 0 1


Deprives the knight of the g6 square. The immediate 1.h7? results in 1...Ng6 2.h5 Nh8 and it's not clear how White can proceed. Any win he has is a long way off.

1...Kxe5 2.Nd7+!

2.h7 Nxh7 3.Nxh7 also wins, but not as fast.

3.h7 Nc5+
4.Ke2 ends Black's counterplay and now White's h-pawn cannot be stopped.

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.
