Good afternoon to all of you chess and/or dress lovers.

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.

1.Nc7+ Kf8
2.Qd8+! Bxd8

Deflecting the bishop allows the rook to enter the fray:

1.Rxb7 Rdg8

An important and necessary zwischenzug. Too hasty is 2.Rb8+ Kxb8 3.Qb2+ Kc8 4. Qb7+ Kd8 5.Qb8+ Bc8 and White's attack is stymied.

3.Rb8+ Bc8
4.Rxc8+ Kxc8
5.Qb7+ Kd8

1... Nxf3+
2. exf3 Bg2
3. Bg7+

If 3.g4 then 3...Bxf3 4.Bxh8 Qxg4+ 5.Kf1 Qg2+ 6.Ke1 Qg1#


You don't want to take the bishop 3...Kxg7 because 4.g4 Bh1 5.Qb2+ f6 6.Re1 Qc7 7.Qc3 Rh3 8.Re3 bxc6 9. Rae1 Qh2+ 10.Kf1 Qf4 11.Ke2. Even with his extra bishop, it's going to take awhile for Black to dig out White's king.

4.Qf5 Qxf5
5.f4 Bf3
6.Bxh8 Qh3
7.cxb7 Qh1#

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.
