TheJamesMadison will be along later with the movie thread. As always, the chess/dress pr0n thread is an open thread, so there is no such thing as an off-topic comment.

Problem Solutions

Beginner Problem - White To Play

20200314 - Problem 1.jpg
1r3r1k/2pbq1n1/p3p1nN/1p1P4/2P5/3BP2R/6PP/B4RK1 w - - 0 1

1.Nf7+ Kg8
2.Rh8+ Nxh8

Intermediate Problem - White To Play

20200314 - Problem 2.jpg
3q4/1R6/2p2pk1/2Pp4/P2PpPP1/2B2nK1/8/1R6 w - - 0 1

1.f5+! Kg5

Not 1...Kh6? 2.Rh1+ Kg5 3.Rh5#

2... Kh6
3 Rg6+ Kh7
4.Rh1+ Nh2

Nothing left but a spite check. Chess apps are good at finding spite checks.

5.Rxh2# 1-0

There's another line that zombie found:

2.Rh1 (threatening Rh4#)


And so quick, we're down to the spite blocks and checks

3.Rxb8 Nh2
4.Bd2+ e3

Advanced Problem - White To Play

20200314 - Problem 3.jpg
8/q1n3kp/2p3p1/1p6/1B1pN3/3P1P2/r1P3PP/2Q2K2 w - - 0 1

1. Qh6+! Kxh6

Not taking the queen brings about an earlier mate, i.e.

2.Qf8+ Ke6
3.Qe7+ Kd5 (3... Kf5 4. Qf6#)
4.Qd6# (or 4.Nf6#)

And so with the queen gone, it is now a straight-up king hunt:

2.Bf8+ Kh5
3.g4+ Kh4
4.Be7+ g5
5.Bxg5+ Kh3
6.Nf2+ Kxh2

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.
