Pic Note

You know what's weird? Doing a Google search on 'chess hotties' and getting a bunch of links to previous AoSHQ Chess Threads in the results.

Sorry about this thread's absence last week, but you never know when real-world events are going to disrupt regular programming.

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

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



Beginner Problem - Black To Play (1029)

Goal: Black can force mate in 3 moves
Hint: Drive the White king to the a6 square


20190810 - Problem 1.jpg
1K6/4r3/2k5/p2p2bR/8/2P3P1/PP3R1P/8 b - - 0 1





Intermediate Problem - Black To Play (1030)

Goal: Black can force mate in 4 moves
Hint: White's h-pawn is in the way


20190810 - Problem 2.jpg
r1b3k1/pp2q1p1/7p/2pP4/2Pb4/6N1/P1QB1r1P/2R2R1K b - - 0 1



Advanced Problem - Black To Play (1033)

White's position is not as strong as it may appear. What can Black do to push him over the edge?
Note: I think there are actually two solutions (lines), and they are quite different. My app found one I had completely missed.

Solutions Update

Beginner Problem - Black To Play


20190810 - Problem 1.jpg
1K6/4r3/2k5/p2p2bR/8/2P3P1/PP3R1P/8 b - - 0 1

1...Re8+
2.Ka7 Be3+
3.Ka6 Ra8#


Intermediate Problem - Black To Play


20190810 - Problem 2.jpg
r1b3k1/pp2q1p1/7p/2pP4/2Pb4/6N1/P1QB1r1P/2R2R1K b - - 0 1

1...Rxh2+
2.Kxh2 Qh4+
3.Kg2 Bh3+
4.Kf3 Qg4#


Advanced Problem - Black To Play


20190810 - Problem 3.jpg
8/1p2b1pk/2p1p2p/Q1PrPp2/3r1PqP/PP1N2P1/3R1K2/3R4 b - - 0 1

1...Rxd3
2.Rxd3 Bxc5+
3.Kg2 3...Rxd3

Or if 3.Ke1 then 3...Bf2+ 4.Kxf2 Rxa5

4.Rxd3 Qe2+ and there's no stopping mate.

However, my app found a completely different line, starting with

1...Bxh4

And then:

2.gxh4 Re4
3.Rg1 Rxf4+
4.Nxf4 Qxf4+
5.Ke2 Qh2+
6.Kf1 Rxd2

Threatening Qf2#

7.Qxd2

Forced.

7...Qxd2

And now with Black's queen dominating the board, White's unprotected pawns fall like ripe apples.

8.Rg3 Qc1+
9.Ke2 Qc2+
10.Kf1 Qxc5
11.a4 Qxe5
12.Rh3 Kg6
13.Rf3 Qe4
14.Rh3 Qf4+
15.Ke1 Kh5 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.
