Beginner Problem - White To Play


20200104 - Problem 1.jpg
8/prR2B1k/3q2pp/5b2/5p2/8/P5PK/Q7 w - - 0 1

1.Bg8+

Double check!

1...Kxg8

Forced. And now the queen comes swooping in for the kill shot:

2.Qg7# 1-0


Intermediate Problem - White To Play


20200104 - Problem 2.jpg
1rb1kb1r/5p2/p4q1p/3Q2p1/5P2/6P1/PPP4P/2KR1B1R w k - 0 1

There are a number of branches on the decsion tree:

1.Bb5+ Rxb5 (1...axb5 2.Rhe1+ Be7 3.Qd8#)
2.Rhe1+ Be7

And then it's mate on d8 or d7, depending on Black's response.

(2...Qe6 3. Qd8#)
(2...Be6 3.Qd7#)
(2...Qe7 3.Qd8#)

3.Qd8# 1-0


Advanced Problem - White To Play

Lasker-Thomas, 1912:


20200104 - Problem 3.jpg
rn3rk1/pbppq1pp/1p2pb2/4N2Q/3PN3/3B4/PPP2PPP/R3K2R w KQ - 0 1

1. Qxh7+ Kxh7
2. Nxf6+ Kh6
3. Neg4+ Kg5
4. h4+

If 4.f4+ then 4...Kh4 5. g3+ Kh3 6. Bf1+ Bg2 7. Nf2#

4...Kf4
5.g3+ Kf3
6.O-O

Or 6.Be2+ Kg2 7.Rh2+ Kg1 8.O-O-O#. I think this was the actual line from the game)

6...gxf6
7.Nh2# 1-0

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.
