The Duke plays chess with daughter Melinda, While DIL Peggy Watches, 1963

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


Pic Note:

The Duke was reportedly an avid chess player. One site identifies the woman standing as his his daughter "Peggy", but as far as I know, he did not have a daughter by that name. So I don't know who it is. Perhaps a family friend.

Intermediate Problem - White To Play (650)

Goal: White can mate in 3 or 4

There's more than one mating line. See if you can see the one that your chess app will probably find.

1. Qh6 Qxf6
2. Rd8+ Bxd8
3. Qf8# 1-0

This is the one you probably found. But the app found a longer mate was possible by throwing pieces at it:

1...Qxh2+
2.Kxh2 Bd6+
3.Rxd6 g5
4. Qxh7#

Humans don't think this way.

5.Rd7 Kh7
6.f8=Q g5
7.Rxg7#

Hope to see you 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.
