The once-every-three-weeks fishing thread will be up later. And as always, the chess/dress pr0n thread is an open thread, so there is no such thing as an off-topic comment.

Greetings from Spain

20190713 dress pr0n melania.jpg
Melania has the hint of something Asiatic in her eyes that makes her beauty kind of exotic. Since she comes from central Europe (Slovenia), I can well imagine her g'g'g'g'g'g'g'g'g'g'...g'grandmother was once ravished by Genghis Khan.

Easier Problem - White To Play

20190713 - Problem 1.jpg
6k1/pr3ppp/1p3qn1/5NQ1/2p5/8/P4PPP/4R1K1 w - - 0 1

1.Re8+ Nf8
2.Nh6+ (2. Qxg7+ Qxg7 3. Ne7+ Rxe7 and threatening Qa1 with mate next move)
3.Rxf8+ Kxf8

More Challenging Problem - Black To Play

20190713 - Problem 2.jpg

An attempt to deflect the queen. Of course, taking the Bishop leads to a quick mate: 2.Qxe5 Qg2+ 3.Kxh4 Qg4#.

White has other options, for example,

2.f4, which leads to Qf3+ 3.Qg3 Qh1+ 4.Qh2 Qxc1 5.fxe5 Qxg5 6.Rd4 Qe3+ 7.Kxh4 Qxd4+ 8.Kg5 Kg7 9.Qf4 Qxf4+ 10.Kxf4 b4 and wins.

Interesting is 2. Rh8+ Bxh8 3.Kxh4 b4 4.f3 Qxf3 5.Qf4 Qxf4+ 6.Bxf4 b3 7.Bc1 b2 8.Bxb2 Bxb2 and wins

Lastly, White could try 2.Qg1, but that just opens up the position for Black to invade: 2...Nf3 3.Qd1 Qe4 4.Kg2 Qg4+ 5.Kf1 Nh2+ 6.Ke1 Bc3+ 7.Qd2 Nf3+ 8.Kf1 Bxd2 9.Bxd2 Qc4+ 10.Kg2 Nh4+ 11.Kg1 Qg4+ 12.Kf1 Qd1+ 13.Be1 Qxd8 14.Ke2 Qxg5 and White is in a resignable position.

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.
