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

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

Pic Note

This artist likes the "noir" theme (i.e. guys wearing fedoras) and it shows in a lot of his paintings you can look at on his site.

Easier Problem - White To Play (999)

Goal: White can either force a quick mate or win Black's queen
Hint: The protection given by Black's f7 pawn is mostly illusory

En Fuego!

More Challenging Problem - White To Play (1000)

Goal: Win by establishing clear positional and material superiority
Hint: Black's queen is vulnerable

I really like this photograph. Mrs. Trump manages to convey a natural, easy warmth that I've never seen in any photos of FLOTUSes Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama.

Easier Problem - White To Play

r1b2r2/1q2Qpkp/pp3np1/3p4/3N4/4P3/P3BPPP/R4RK1 w - - 0 1

1.Ne6+ Bxe6

Pretty much forced. If 1...Kh6 or 1...Kg8 then 2.Qxf8#

2.Qxb7 for the win.

20190615 - Problem 2.jpg
2kr1r2/p6p/5Pp1/2pP4/1qp2Q1P/7R/PP6/1KR5 w - - 0 1

There are a couple of ways White can win:.

1.Rxc4 Qb6
2.Rb3 Rxd5
3.Rxb6 axb6
4.Qe4 Rfd8
5.f7 Rd1+
6.Kc2 R1d6
7.f8=Q Rxf8
8.Qa8+ Kc7
9.Qxf8 and wins

The second line, which looks kind of like the 1st, starts with

1.Rb3! 1... Qb6 (1...Qa4 2. Rb8+ Kd7 3. Rb7+ Ke8 (3... Kc8 4. Qc7#) 4. Re7#)
(1... cxb3 2. Qxb4 Rxd5)

2.Rxc4 Rxd5
3.Rxb6 axb6
4.Qe4 Rfd8
5.f7 Kc7
6.f8=Q Rxf8
7.Qxd5 Rd8

This is the move my app likes, but 8.Qxd8 Kxd8 9.Rf4 is my preferred simplification. Black has no weapons or threats left.

9.Qe4+ Kc7
10.Kc2 Rd7
11.Ra4 Rd4
12.Qe7+ Kc6
13.Qe6+ Kb7
14.Rxd4 cxd4
15.Qd7+ and wins.

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.
