Presumably, we will have a fishing thread later. As always, the chess/dress pr0n thread is an open thread, so there is no such thing as an off-topic comment.

Beginner Problem - White To Play (428 )

Goal: White can force mate in 2
Hint: The bishop on e7 is too well-protected, so find another way to check

Beginner Problem - White To Play

r2qk3/pp1nb2r/4Qp2/3N3p/8/8/PPP2PPP/2K1RB1R w q - 0 1

Mate in 2:

1.Qg8+ Nf8

The only move. The bishop on 37 can't move because it's pinned by White's rook on e1.

Intermediate Problem - Black To Play

20200208 - Problem 2.jpg
5k2/6pb/8/3K4/1P1B4/p1P5/8/8 b - - 0 1

2.Kc5 Bc4
3.Kxc4 a2
4.Kc5 a1=Q

1. Ng5+

Black has two flight squares for his king, h8 and h6. If he moves to h8, then it's just a king chase:

2.Qh5+ Kg8
3.Qh7+ Kf8

The other line:

2.g4 g6
3.h4 Re7
4.Qh7+ Rxh7

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.
