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.

Advanced Problem - White To Play (1199)

There are many mating lines in this problem. What is the longest one, that is, for how many moves can Black stave off defeat?

Hint: Black can hold out for, at most, 6 moves

Beginner Problem - Black To Play

20200912 - Problem 1.jpg
4k3/1p3p2/pqbQp2p/8/4PP2/1P6/1P6/3R3K b - - 0 1

It's a mate in 3:

2.Kh2 Qf2+
3.Kh3 Bf5#

Intermediate Problem - White To Play

20200912 - Problem 2.jpg
r6r/1ppq1k2/p2Pp3/5N1p/1Pn1nP1P/8/P1PbK1Q1/8 w - - 0 1

White can force mate in 4:

1.Qg7+ Ke8
2.Qxh8+ Kf7
3.Qg7+ Ke8

Advanced Problem - White To Play

20200912 - Problem 3.jpg
3qbbk1/1p5p/p1ppP3/P7/2N3BP/2P3R1/3B1P1K/8 w - - 0 1

1.e7 Bg6

Best. The other options end the game more quickly:

a) 1...Bxe7 2.Be6+ Kf8 (2...Kh8 3.Rg8#) 3.Rg8#
b) 1...Kf7 2.Rf3+ Kg7 (2...Kg6 3.h5+ Kg7 4.exf8=Q#) 3.exf8=Q+ Kg6 4.h5#
c) 1...Qxe7 2.Be6+ Kh8 3.Rg8#

1...Bg6 blocks off the 'g' file for awhile:

2.exd8=Q h5
3.Be6+ Kg7
4.Rxg6+ Kxg6
5.Qxf8 c5

So Black can hold for, at most, 6 moves.

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.
