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 - Black To Play (1219)

Goal: Black can force mate in 3 moves
Hint: Drag the king out from his hidey-hole

20201024 - Problem 1.jpg
5Bk1/1p3pp1/2p2n1p/4rq2/P3p3/2Q2nP1/BPP1RPKP/5R2 b - - 0 1

Intermediate Problem - White To Play (1220)

Goal: White can force mate in 5 moves
Hint: Make Black have to fight off a smothered mate

20201024 - Problem 2.jpg
k1r2r2/pp6/4NN2/2p5/1qn2Q2/8/PP6/K4R2 w - - 0 1

Advanced Problem - White To Play (1221)

How does White achieve a clearly winning position?

Hint: Take advantage of Black's poorly positioned, hemmed in rook

4K2R/2p5/3k1rq1/3P4/1P4p1/3Q4/2P5/8 w - - 0 1

Note: I've received a few requests for photos of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, but there simply aren't very many that I like. These are the best I can find. Most of the photos have her standing behind the podium, so she's mostly not visible. She wears nice dresses, but most of the time, they can't be seen.

Beginner Problem - Black To Play

20201024 - Problem 1.jpg
5Bk1/1p3pp1/2p2n1p/4rq2/P3p3/2Q2nP1/BPP1RPKP/5R2 b - - 0 1

1... Qh3+

If 2.Kh1?? then Qxh2#

3.Kg2 Rxh2#

Intermediate Problem - White To Play

20201024 - Problem 2.jpg
k1r2r2/pp6/4NN2/2p5/1qn2Q2/8/PP6/K4R2 w - - 0 1

1.Qb8+ Kxb8

Not 1...Rxb8?? 2.Nc7# with the smothered mate.

2.Nd7+ Ka8
3.Nc7+ Rxc7
4.Rxf8+ Rc8

Advanced Problem - White To Play

How does White achieve a clearly winning position?

Hint: Take advantage of Black's poorly positioned, hemmed in rook

20201024 - Problem 3.jpg
4K2R/2p5/3k1rq1/3P4/1P4p1/3Q4/2P5/8 w - - 0 1


1.Qxg6 Rxg6

Now White can take advantage of Black's hemmed-in rook.

2.Kf7 Rg5
3.Kf6 Rxd5
4.c4 Rd4
5.Rd8+ Kc6
6. Rxd4 and wins

or 3...Kxd5 4.Kxg5 g3 5.Rh3 g2 6.Rg3 Kc4 7.Kf5 Kxb4 8.Ke5 g1=N 9.Rxg1 is pretty much the same thing.

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.
