Advanced Problem - White To Play


20210612 Problem 3.jpg
R7/P5k1/8/5P2/8/8/r7/7K w - - 0 1

Push that pawn! Black's choices are surprising limited:

1.f6+ Kf7

He really can't take the pawn: 1...Kxf6 2.Rf8+ Ke7 3.a8=Q Rxa8 4.Rxa8 and wins

2.Rh8 Kxf6

or 2...Rxa7 3. Rh7+ Kxf6 4. Rxa7 and wins

Black's rook is pretty much stuck on the 'a' file. And if he tries to harass White's king with it, he'll soon run out of checks: 2...Ra1+ 3.Kg2 Ra2+ 4.Kf3 Ra3+ 5.Ke4 Ra4+ 6.Kd5 Ra5+ 7.Kc6 Ra6+ 8.Kb7 Rxa7+ 9.Kxa7 Kxf6 and wins.

3.a8=Q Rxa8
4.Rxa8 winning.

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.

9 So, I have been watching the E3 stream by Voxis.

I remember when a buddy and I were talking about Naughty Dog waaay back. This was about the time that the first Last of Us came out. The game play for Naughty Dogs games was never as tight and fun as the story linked with the games. Especially on the later ones, it seemed like NG was looking more to be film makers than game developers.

I am sitting here watching this crap that is being streamed today and thinking back to those conversations. None of these morons actually seem to want to make games but rather be amateur filmmakers- and poor ones at that. What little actual games are being touted all seem to be cold, boring affairs.

12 Hubs and I finally finished The Queen's Gambit last night. Nicely done. The guy who plays "Benny" the last boyfriend, is the actor that has voiced Ferb from Phineas and Ferb. He never has more than a word or 2 in the cartoons, but he gets credit. Another Brit playing an American.

Will they do best of breed champion tonight?

Posted by: vmom stabby stabby stabby stabamillion at June 12, 2021 04:49 PM (oEn12)

28 I think I've got it. Black is stuck, the rook can't move or the pawn advances and the black king has to stay on row 7, otherwise white can use the rook for a check and force black to sacrifice its rook.

So white moves the pawn up, black has to go to F7, white moves the king, black has no where to move other than moving the rook around, and must keep it on column A. White keeps moving the king until it either takes the rook, black moves the rook off A, or black moves the king off row 7.

Might be bragging on this all day, but Delilah was Best of Breed at today's Westminster Kennel Club show. Looking at the winners (https://tinyurl.com/4ztryawe), she must have been a little dark spot in a sea of white.

vmom stabby stabby stabby stabamillion

From the pet thread
This is our second Westminster breed win. Lila's grandmother, the great Lacey, was Best of Breed in 2004.

Lila will be in the Hound Group tonight (where we don't expect to do anything), televised on Fox Sports. Coverage begins at 7:00 PM Eastern and Hounds are first up at 7:30.

Sorry to be a bore, but for you non-Pet Threadians Delilah was Best of Breed at today's Westminster Kennel Club show. Here's the link to the breed judging

https://youtu.be/e_ahDvGBg4A

Lila's examination is at 11:20 and the placements are at 17:20. She was handled by Brian Livingston.

She will now compete in the Hound Group this evening. It will be televised on Fox Sports, with coverage beginning at 7:00 PM Eastern and Hounds going in at 7:30. We don't expect anything but it's exciting to be there.

40 Yesterday (I think) there was a discussion about mechanical 35mm film cameras. Someone mentioned the problem of replacing the now discontinued mercury batteries many of these older cameras used. There is a direct replacement in the correct 1.35 voltage. It's the Weincell designed as a replacement. Not especially cheap at 4 to 5 bucks each but they will work. Adorama and B and H Camera in NYC have them and Amazon probably does. Just FYI.

67 as usual, i got nuthin on even the "easy" problem... maybe move the queen up to the 7th row, protected by the white castle, so king goes in corner, then other white castle takes out the black bishop, so queen can move to 8th row for mate.

undoubtedly there is some simple move by black that defeats this idea, because i suck at chess. ima go get something different to fix for dinner, and w*rk on my AR parts collection, since i DO understand gubs. see y'all on the ONT!

Biden to name Pulse Nightclub a national memorial

-
President Joe Biden said on the fifth anniversary of a mass shooting at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida, that he will sign a bill naming the site as a national memorial.

. . .

The president emphasized that the country must do more to reduce gun violence, such as banning assault weapons and closing loopholes in regulations that enable gun buyers to bypass background checks. Biden said the nation must acknowledge that gun violence has hurt members of the LGBTQ community

"that he will sign a bill naming the site as a national memorial."

Oh that's brilliant. So many mass shooters claim they wanted to make a splash, making their murder site a national memorial will just incentivize.

Biden wants MORE mass murders so the Dems can ban lawful possession of firearms while emotions are raw.

Same way BLM uses black corpses as props to advance Marxism.

175 Biden to name Pulse Nightclub a national memorial

As I remember, the police took a very long time before entering, so many people had a chance to bleed out - not really the fault of the police, same zeal as the Broward Sheriff Department had during the school shooting. Wait outside until the shooter dies of old age.

But the part that never was explored was where a large number of people retreated to the bathroom and cowered there. It was the wall to that very bathroom that the SWAT team decided to blow up to breech the building. I wonder how many died from the concussion and violence of an explosion dropping a concrete wall on those inside.

I would say, without evidence, that the tactics by the police rivaled the numbers killed by the perps.

Biden to name Pulse Nightclub a national memorial

-
President Joe Biden said on the fifth anniversary of a mass shooting at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida, that he will sign a bill naming the site as a national memorial.

. . .
The president emphasized that the country must do more to reduce gun violence, such as banning assault weapons and closing loopholes in regulations that enable gun buyers to bypass background checks. Biden said the nation must acknowledge that gun violence has hurt members of the LGBTQ community

203 Oh that's brilliant. So many mass shooters claim they wanted to make a splash, making their murder site a national memorial will just incentivize.

America has always had this sick and depraved obsession with ignoring victory and celebrating death and failure.

How many people know about Pearl Harbor Day but can't name VE or VJ day? Remember the Alamo! When was Saddam Hussein or Osama bin Laden taken out compared to knowing about 9-11 ? Where were you when JFK was shot or MLK or John Lennon?
What date did man step on to the moon? But we know the date of the Columbia disaster. Everyone takes the day off for Memorial, but only government and banks observe Veterans. I fear that July 4th will fade away before Cinco de Mayo.

I was just reading. The oldest cold case to date has been solved via the DNA databases from the genealogy outfits. It was 1956 double murder and rape in Great Falls, Montana.

Young couple were parked on a local lovers' lane. Both were shot in the head and the 16 yr. old girl was raped as well.

The found the perp, a man in Missouri. He died in 2007. Gathering evidence from his children, they proved it was him.

I have very mixed feelings about this.

274 I was just reading. The oldest cold case to date has been solved via the DNA databases from the genealogy outfits. It was 1956 double murder and rape in Great Falls, Montana.
Young couple were parked on a local lovers' lane. Both were shot in the head and the 16 yr. old girl was raped as well.
The found the perp, a man in Missouri. He died in 2007. Gathering evidence from his children, they proved it was him.
I have very mixed feelings about this.

Its almost like giving away your dna to a third party destroys the privacy of your family that didn't volunteer to do it. I just wonder if I'll be alive to see the argument that a national dna registry is perfectly fine and not a violation of rights.

very cool. I'm guessing the hampton was a flame out? Well, to be honest, it was nice, but not the cleanest, and I'm usually a hampton fan. When me and my bro went to check out the room the bed spread on his bed was filthy, like it was dragged on the floor and picked up all kinds of crap, then we found some pill on the carpet. Ok yeah, metal guitar player complaining about shit hotel rooms and pills on the floor, but this was vacation, lol. Anyway, I went to the lobby, saw the dude at the desk with the hassan chop headgear, and he looked fairly pissed about the room condition, and offered us a new room. My brother, in his typical style says " same chick cleaning, wtf do you think will be better about the next room". We went out for a smoke, went back upstairs and all the room seals were broken and some suits were in there inspecting things. At that point I was already eye balling the holiday inn express.

291
The way this DNA database thing typically works is they get a close match to a distant relative of the perp. On average it's roughly 2nd - 3rd cousin level. They then construct a reverse family tree from that hit, finding all that person's relatives. They then start investigating them all, trying to zero in on the one who could be placed at the scene of the crime. Oh, yep, he's a 2nd cousin that lived in the area....

That subjects a bunch of innocent people to a investigative colonoscopy.

And that's bad enough. But in the case, the perp was dead, and had been dead for over 10 years.

Is there any real justice that comes from identifying him?

Even when Repup came close, and only in gov races, it turns out the state GOP did not lift a finger. If there are betting odds on major VA races, my advice to you is to bet Dem. I hope I am wrong but I won't be. I saw this in 2016 when Trump gave everything for VA. I had relatives that night that were sure he had won VA. I knew it would all go South.

Unfortunately for Garland, the Supremes have already gutted the ability for the Federal Government to make a state's right to control its own elections illegal using this act...

He's just saying this stuff in speeches because its what the left desperately wants to hear, that the audits will be stopped and all those nasty Trump voters who want them will be arrested and locked up forever - but Merrick Garland already knows that no state or federal court is ever going to listen to any idiotic attempts to use the 1965 voters right act to arrest auditors or even prohibit states from auditing their results.

Another term of Trump and the mulkahs would have been finished.

It's so sickening.

368 Iran is on the brink of a seminal transformation in this years presidential election. The regimes Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, took a major step this week to push through his preferred candidate for the presidency, Ebrahim Raisi, current head of the judiciary.
Ebrahim Raisi, current Judiciary Chief, subservient disciple to Ruhollah Khomeini, the only serious contender among 592 registered candidates, was qualified to run by the Guardian Council. The Iranian people know Raisi as the Henchman of the 1988 massacre.

He was a key perpetrator of the murder of over 30,000 political prisoners in 1988. He has no academic or religious credentials even within the murderous theocracy. In short, Raisi earned his credentials in the regime as a stone-hearted killer who rose the ranks of ignorant thugs, with a proven 40-year track record for execution and repression.

And BTW, Russia just sold a recon satellite to Iran. As the idiot children in the administration openly and surreptitiously void sanctions on Iran, desperate to revive the disastrous, ridiculous JCPOA deal.

I like the campaign of hitting large industrial concerns in Iran.

The power plants and distribution centers need a concerted air campaign. I've been saying since, uh 1986, that no electrical generation is a mission kill for a nation. Those centrifuges need a lot of power.

The centrifuges on the strong marble bases, filled with explosives by Mossad agents, are gone now.

Of course. I don't understand how you judge among the perfect of all those breeds? Which is the most perfect, I couldn't do it

Posted by: CN at June 12, 2021 07:25 PM (ONvIw)

389 Congrats Hadrian! I know Delilah did not win the hound group, but she did win best of breed and it is a huge accomplishment. I don't have a t.v. but it just so happens I am taking care of my son's dog tonight at his house while he is out of town so I came extra early to watch the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show to see Delilah. So very exciting.

I think there is an old method of getting news out that may come back in style. It's called newspapers.

394 The DOJ scrutiny of the audits could actually work in our favor. If they observe, they will have no excuse for saying they did not see the evidence of criminality, if it is found.
