No movie thread today. As far as I know.

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 (1343)

Goal: Black can force mate in 3 moves
Hint: The g3 pawn is weak, and can be taken

Intermediate Problem - White To Play (1330)

Goal: White can force mate in 6
Hint: Throw everything into an attack on the open h-file

Advanced Problem - Black To Play (1335)

Looking at the board, this is one of those times when going after the rook on a8, as White evidently did, turns out to be A Very Bad Idea. How quickly can Black make him pay for his foolishness?

Beginner Problem - Black To Play


20210403 - Problem 1.jpg
2kr3r/1bbp1p2/p3pp2/1p4q1/4P3/PNN1PBP1/1PP3KP/1R1Q1R2 b - - 0 1

1...Rxh2+ !
2.Kxh2 (or 2.Kg1 Qxg3+ 3.Bg2 Qxg2#)
2...Qxg3+
3.Kh1 Qh2#


Intermediate Problem - White To Play


20210403 - Problem 2.jpg
r3qrk1/2pbppp1/1nQ5/4N3/2n2B1R/p3P2N/1PP2P2/1K5R w - - 0 1

The correct strategy here is to keep up the pressure and don't give him time to even breathe.

1.Rh8+ Kxh8
2.Ng5+ Kg8
3.Rh8+ Kxh8
4.Qh1+ Bh3
5.Qxh3+ Kg8
6.Qh7#


Advanced Problem - Black To Play


20210403 - Problem 3.jpg
Nnbk2nr/pp1p1ppp/5q2/2b1p3/8/3P4/PPP1PPPP/R1BQKBNR b KQ - 0 1

1...Qxf2+
2.Kd2 Qf4+!

Not 2...Qe3+? which leads to nowhere: 3.Kc3 Qd4+ 4.Kd2, Qe3+, Kc3, back and forth, etc.

3. e3 (if 3.Kc3? Qb4#)

3...Qxe3+
4.Kc3 Qd4+
5.Kd2 Qf4+
6.Ke1 (or 6.Kc3 Qb4#)
6...Qf2#


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.
