Moviegique 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.

Beginner Problem - White To Play


20200822 - Problem 1.jpg
2kr1b1r/pp6/2n1P1p1/3N3p/2BP1BP1/3K1Q2/PPP5/6q1 w - - 0 1

1.Nb6+ axb6
2.Qxc6+ bxc6
3.Ba6#

Cracking open the opponent's queenside and exposing the king to the cross-fire of two bishops happens so often, there's a name for it: Boden's Mate.


Intermediate Problem - White To Play


20200822 - Problem 2.jpg
1r5r/3Rbkpn/Bp2p1p1/2P2p2/4pP2/1Q2P3/PP3qPP/1K1R4 w - - 0 1

It's mate in 4:

1.Qxe6+ Kxe6
2.Bc4+ Kf6
3.R1d6+ Bxd6
4.Rf7#


Advanced Problem - Black To Play

What's the best way for Black to obtain a winning position?


20200822 - Problem 3.jpg
8/1p1k4/p1pPn1p1/P1P5/1BP2P2/6Rr/4pK2/8 b - - 0 1

1...Rxg3
2.Kxg3 Nxc5
3.Kf3 Nd3
4.Bc3 e1=Q
5.Bxe1 Nxe1+
6.Ke2 Nc2
7.Kf3 Kxd6
8.Kg4 Ne1
9.Kg5 Nd3
10.Kxg6 Nxf4+
11.Kf5 Kc5
12.Kxf4 Kxc4 and wins

Letting the knight go is the way *I* would proceed. I'll soon eat his last pawn and then he's finished. But my app likes to hold on to the knight, which I tend to think wastes time, but hey, that's just me. So on move 11, instead of abandoning the knight, Black skedaddles:

11... Ng2
12. Ke4 Kc5
13. Kd3 Ne1+
14. Kc3 Nf3
15. Kc2 Ne5
16. Kb3 Nxc4
17. Kc2 Nxa5 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.
