Beginner Problem - White To Play (1479)

Goal: White can force mate in 2 moves
Hint: Remove a defender

The Longest Game

The above meme refers the 6th game of the FIDE World Chess Championhip Match currently being played in Dubai between the reigning champion Magnus Carlsen (NOR) and challenger Ian Nepomniachtchi (RUS). It was one for the record books:

In terms of moves, the game broke the record of the longest game in world championship history. Before today, it was the 124 moves played in the fifth match game of Korchnoi-Karpov, Baguio City 1978, but with 136 moves, we now have a new longest game.

The game lasted more than 8 hours(!) I can't imagine. You can play through it here:

It is very demoralizing to throw all of your effort and energy into a long, grueling chess game only to lose it in the endgame. I hope Nepo can recover.



Intermediate Problem - Black To Play (1459)

It's only a mate in 3, but you need to find all three of them.

Advanced Problem - White To Play (1477)

I've found a couple of 2-move mates and one 4-move mate in this position, and you may find others, but what is the longest forced mate you can find?

Problem Solutions

Beginner Problem - White To Play


20211204 Problem 1.jpg
r5nk/1p4R1/p2pprRp/5p2/8/P2B1P2/1qPQ1P1P/7K w - - 0 1

1.Rxg8+!

Removes the only defender of the pawn on h6

1...Rxg8
2.Qxh6#

Or, if 1...Kh7 then 2.R6g7#


Intermediate Problem - Black To Play


20211204 Problem 2.jpg
4r2k/pq4pp/2b5/5p2/8/2NP2P1/PPP2R1P/R1B2K2 b - - 0 1

Here are the three mate-in-3 lines:

Line 1: 1...Bg2+ 2.Kg1 Re1+ 3.Rf1 Rxf1#

Line 2: 1...Bg2+ 2.Rxg2 Qf3+ 3.Rf2 Qh1#

Line 3: 1...Bg2+ 2.Rxg2 Qf3+ 3.Kg1 Re1#


Advanced Problem - White To Play


20211204 Problem 3.jpg
1qb1n3/3n1k1p/2r1pPp1/2B5/3QPP2/1PN4P/P1P5/1K1R4 w - - 0 1

1.Qxd7+! Bxd7

Pretty much forced. The other options lose immediately:

1...Kg8 2.Qxe8#
1...Kxf6 2.Qe7#

2. Rxd7+ Kxf6

Again, the capture is forced: 2...Kg8 3.f7+ Kg7 4.f8=Q#

3.Bd4+ e5
4.Nd5+ Ke6
5.Re7+ Kd6
6.fxe5#


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.

Also, do you remember Martin Bashir? MSNBC loudmouth who went on an insane rant two three years ago about forcing Sarah Palin to eat shit (literally). Which was apparently too much even for MSNBC, so they gave him the heave-ho. Haven't heard from him since.

I just discovered this very day that there is a stretch of the 134 freeway in L.A. County that is referred to on Google Maps as the "Barack Obama Highway."

It's the Historic First black section of freeway in the county. I only hope this takes nothing away from the two-mile stretch of Sunset that they named Martin Luther King Boulevard many years ago.

History time.

True or False?

In the 80's, President Reagan imposed tariffs on Japanese imports, thus revitalizing manufacturers such as Harley Davidson.

Then, to celebrate, Harley-Davidson launched its "FATBOY" model motorcycle, which derives its name from the WWII atomic bombs, "Fatman" and "Little Boy."

156 I played my first game of chess in about 5 years. A nephew was visiting, and wanted a game.

What was interesting to me is that pretty much all of my previous games were with opponents who were about comparable, or significantly better. Watching what the significantly better ones did, I thought "wow, they are really playing aggressively."

Turns out, not so much. What looked aggressive is more just what happens when you are much better than your opponent, as I was this time, and you keep seeing opportunities.

Banks won't touch drug money due to federal law. They have to take cash, even laundering it is dangerous.
All taxes are paid in cash as well, which is a logistical and security issue for the state taxing authorities.
However, the STATES can bank with drug money, because of course they can.

316 Wow, Oregon passing a PERMANENT indoor mask mandate.

And since there is no evidence that mask wearing, indoors or outdoors has any discernable positive health benefit (but an ever-increasing mound of evidence showing a negative mental and physical health effect) this sets up a precedent that the State can force you to do anything since you are deemed chattel of the State.

They didn't even have to prove any benefit at all to make this a law. They can just as well mandate wearing a gimp suit or dressing as a furry.

This is tyranny. This is NOT America.

380 And he did not even get a chance to throw a donkey show for his brother in Cuba.

That was no donkey. That's Superman.

381 Georgia just not quite elite on offense. Kirby needs to recruit that up. And they still might win the NC this year so no, Kirby is safe.

And really, Alabama won on two defensive plays and Young's arm. It was closer than the score indicates.

382 I'm so old, I can remember when Portland was interesting to visit.

Speaking of the Poles (and in gamer news), apparently, CyberPunk 2077 is going multiplayer. Few details, for example, I don't know if this will be DLC or an entire new game (Cyberpunk 2077 II: The Suck Continues). I guess they got a new supply of dystopia. Anyway, don't expect it anytime soon. They're scheduled to start working on it next year.

383 Way back when I was a teen I had a 7 move forced mate- not realizing it when I started. I looked at the board and realized the only way to avoid my own checkmate was to check his king, which would deny him the checkmate move. No one resigned games at that age- we played until the bitter end. He had one move out of it- took it. I was still in the same situation- and checked him again. One move out of it... and so on for 7 moves where the final check was a checkmate.

384 I'm in Oregon, so I don't get to these problems until everyone else is long finished. But, OregonMuse, you missed a simpler and shorter solution to your advanced problem. The first 2 moves are the same, and we pick it up at move 3:
3.e5+ Kf5
4.Rf7+ Nf6
5.Rxf6#

385 Ah, let me retract what I just wrote. Black cam forestall the mate by sacrificing his queen, thus:
3.e5+ Qxe5
4.Bd4 and white will still win, but not as quickly.

386 Another revision to my previous post. 4.Bd4 is not optimal because of QxB. Better to immediately take the queen with the pawn 4.fxe5
And once again, I work my way around to seeing the wisdom of your original solution! :-)
