As always, the chess/dress pr0n thread is an open thread, so there is no such thing as an off-topic comment.


Easier Problem - White To Play (901)

Goal: White can force a mate in 3
Hint: Force a defender to move

2rqkb1r/pQ4p1/2p1P2p/2p1np2/8/2P2B2/PP3PPP/RN2K2R w KQk - 0 1


More Challenging Problem - White To Play (902)

This is another position where one player, in this case White, resigned in a winning position. He probably saw that 1.f7?? would be met with 1...Rc1+ 2.Ke2 d1=Q+ and threw in the towel. But he missed several lines that actually win.

Goal: use the pawns to force simplification
Hint: break up Black's dominance on the d-file

Easier Problem - White To Play


20190209 - Problem 1.jpg
2rqkb1r/pQ4p1/2p1P2p/2p1np2/8/2P2B2/PP3PPP/RN2K2R w KQk - 0 1

1.Bh5+ g6

Black can't move the knight. If 1...Ng6, then 2.Qf7#

2.Bxg6+ Nf7 (if 2...Nxg6 then 3.Qf7#)
3.Bxf7# (or 3.Qxf7#)

In all of the lines, the key is to force the defending knight out of position.


More Challenging Problem - White To Play


20190209 - Problem 2.jpg
2kr4/ppp3Pp/4RP1B/2r5/5P2/8/PP1p3P/3K4 w - - 0 1

1.f7?? is premature as it allows Black counterplay with 1.Rc1+ 2.Ke2 d1=Q+ and mate to follow shortly.
Much better is

1.Rd6!

There are two ways to capture:

A) If 1...cxd6 then White proceeds with the immediate 2.f7

B) 1...Rxd6 2.g8=Q+ Rd8

3.Qxd8+ Kxd8
4.f7 Rf5
5.f8=Q+ Rxf8
6.Bxf8 Kd7
7.Kxd2 and wins

Another line, which basically comes out the same, is

2...Kd7
3.Qxh7+ Kc8
4.Qg8+ Kd7
5.Qf7+ Kc6
6.Qe8+ Kb6
7.Qe3 Kc6
8.Qxc5+ Kxc5
9.f7 Rf6
10.f8=Q+ Rxf8
11.Bxf8+ and wins

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.

12 Easy Problem.

1. Bh5+ g6 ( or Ng6 2. Bxg6# or Nf6 2. Bxf7# )
2. Bxg6+ Nxg6
3. Qf7#

Ignored at least one other mating line. I assume the goal was mate in 3 or I have it wrong.

35 More Challenging Problem.

1. Rd6 is obvious. It's the only move that stops Rc1+ by allowing the king to take the pawn on d2.

Black will have to play (not necessarily on first move):

... Rxd6

after which white will eventually get g8=Q+

For example.

1. Rd6 Rc1+
2. Kxd2 Rxd6+
3. Kxc1 Rd8 (prevents g8=Q)
4. f7 is now winning.

44 35. For example.


I see I've ignored cxd6 but then white can play f7 immediately because on Rc1+ white just takes the pawn and there is no follow-up with check.

52 Somewhere within this thread, I'm sensing a deadly derringer.

He heard of a machine called the "Automaton Chess Player," which was beating every one who played against it. So he went to try his skill with the machine. He lost the first game, so with the second, and the third. Then, rising in astonishment from his seat, he walked around the machine and looked at it a few minutes. Then, stopping and pointing at it, he exclaimed, 'There is a man in there.'

That's a line I hadn't seen, but it has the basic idea of the ones I did. 1.Rd6 is key and it allows an eventual pawn-advance-to-f7 threat.

Did you happen to see the Coen Brothers film Hail Caesar!? I ask because their view of commies in the film industry is pretty benign. The entire industry seems staffed by degenerate half-wits, according to the Coens, but the communist (writers mainly) are especially naive, especially given the bare-knuckled capitalist nature of the industry.

107 First problem:

Too easy: Won't spoil it for everyone.

Second problem:

Looks like Rd6! is the only move. If the pawn takes the rook, then the d [awn is undefended. I the rook takes the rook, then the g-pawn can queen with check. After that it gets complicated, but I think the fact the the bishop covers the queening square of the f pawn, and the fact that the pawn on f5 prevents a rook from going behind it, means that eventually white will win both rooks for both pawns, leaving him a bishop up.

No, I haven't seen "Hail Caesar!" Truth is, many of the Communists in Hollywood were quite accomplished film scenarists and wrote some robust patriotic films (such as Sahara). What I did note in Sahara was its internationalist sympathy, i.e., compassion for the lowly Italian soldier and the doughty French one.

Love him or hate him you've got to admit he's a hell of a QB.

--Fine by me.

A female colleague the other day had some lotion that smelled almost exactly like vanilla frosting. I briefly flashed back to being six and eating half a can of that non-stop (to my parents' disdain).

301 Tea cakes are usually good.
But they don't taste like tea.

Red velvet cake doesn't taste like red velvet either.
I'm pretty sure of that because my doggeh has tasted both and spits the velvet out.

326 EASIER PUZZLE:

1.Bh5+!

This is the killer move. The knight can't budge, because 1... Ng6 leads to 2. Qf7#, and 1... Nf7 leads to the same, or, more humiliatingly, 2. exf7#. That leaves Black with one move:

1... g6
2. Bxg6+ Bxg6
3. Qf7#

I suppose Black could go 2... Nf7, but that still leads to the ultimate insult of 3. exf7#.

330 The D field is too crowded, so a few will get taken out. But by who?

Beto needs to take out Bernie early, to have a chance, but can't be seen to be doing it. So a Social Media war.

Kamala needs to get Booker out of the way, and early.

Klobucher just blew up over the revelation, never reported by Media, especially by MN Media, that she has worse anger issues than Alec Baldwin and has been viciously attacking her staff for years. No VP for you! Cui bono?

Pocohantas has no shame. She made false statements to advance her career. In the legal profession, intentionally misleading authorities is a hanging offense. Expect more examples soon, and pressure that she get out.

Pocohantas dropped out in 2012. I wonder what Hillary had on her.

332 I want to know which of the VaMoMe attendees summoned the sheer ballsery to attend, costumed as a Virginia Democrat.

You know, blackface, plaid pants, all rapey and such.

Doesn't matter which Virginia Democrat they'd choose to portray, they're all painted with the same brush.

Mostly with black tempura paint. On their faces.

But boy howdy, they sure all got a case of the red-ass now, don't they?

Oh, and don't forget to wear a full Bozo the Clown outfit, but with a Klan chapeau atop the red curly mop.

Ku Klutz Klown, the ultimate Democrat Icon!

It's not too late, VaMoMe! Someone get to Hobby Lobby before they close, and buy All Teh Things!

338 Let me second--or third, or fourth--those complimentary comments on Melania. There are a lot of pretty women in those pictures. Melania blows them away like a Bugatti Veyron would fly past a Mini-Cooper and a Saab Sonnett.

She just looks regal. That word doesn't really convey what I mean but it is as close as I can come at the moment. The task makes me feel like Sam Gamgee trying to explain Galadriel. I remember Ayn Rand writing about a woman who's beauty was so stunning it was something to be worshipped, and I think she's something close to that.

Anyway, it would take a guy with Trump's confidence to approach her because most men would see her and think, "That woman is not only way, way, way out of my league, I'm surprised we're on the same continent."
