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 (959)

Goal: White can force a mate in 4
Hint: Break the pin on the rook on f3

Chess With the Masters:

(h/t Mr. Obvious)


More Challenging Problem - White To Play (960)

As you can see, White has a lot of firepower pointed directly at the castled King's position. What's the best way to bring the game to a successful conclusion?

Goal: A clear mate, but it will take awhile
Hint: "In these types of positions, combinations are as natural as a baby's smile."

Easier Problem - White To Play


20190413 - Problem 1.jpg
q4r1k/5p1p/p2pp2Q/1p2b3/8/2P2R2/P1P4P/6RK w - - 0 1

Answer:

White would have more freedom to do stuff if he could do something about that nasty pin on his rook. But what?

1.Rg2! Qd8

Of course, if 1...Qxf3 then 2.Qxf8#.

There really isn't much Black can do to stop White now. If 1...Rg8 then 2.Qxh7+ Kxh7 3.Rh3#. My moving his queen to d8, Black only succeeds in delaying the checkmate by one more move.

2.Qxh7+ Kxh7
3.Rh3+ Qh4
4.Rxh4#


More Challenging Problem - White To Play

r1q2rk1/pp3ppp/2pbn3/8/4B3/1QB1PP2/PP3P1P/R3K1R1 w Q - 0 1

Answer:

1.Qxe6!

Gets the ball rolling.

1...fxe6

The end comes quickly with 1...Qxe6 2.Rxg7+ Kh8 3.Rxh7+ Kg8 4.Rh8#

2.Rxg7+ Kh8
3.Rxh7+ Kg8
4.Rg7+ Kh8
5.O-O-O

White needs more ammo.

5...Rf5
6.Rg3+ e5
7.Rxd6 Qf8
8.Rdg6 Kh7
9.R6g4 Qg7

or 9...Kh6 10.Rh3+ Rh5 11.Rg6+ Kh7 12.Rxh5+ Qh6 13.Rhxh6#

10.Rxg7+ Kh6
11.Bxf5 Rh8
12.R7g6+ Kh5
13.Rh3#

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.

___________

So that about wraps it up for this week. Chess thread tips, suggestions, bribes, rumors, threats, and insults may be sent to my yahoo address: OregonMuse little-a-in-a-circle yahoo dott com.

Did you hear what happened last week? CBD's internet crapped out for a few hours right during that time and so he couldn't post it. Meanwhile, I'm sitting here looking at the fishing thread in the queue wondering why it isn't being published, and then it's time for the ONT.

We should probably devise some sort of back-up system.

Facts of the Flynn Frame are in plain view. You just need to prove that it was a co-ordinated conspiracy.

71 Really don't like that high waist on Melania. Michelle wore them a lot, as well and they didn't do her any favors.

More Difficult Problem (seems much easier).

1. Qxe6 (threat: Rxg7+ followed by Rg6#)

obviously Qxe6 does not stop this threat

1. ... Re8 (to give K room)
2. Rxg7+ Kf8 (or see above).
3. Qxf8#

So try a delaying tactic.

1. ... Be5
2. Bxe5 Qxe6 (stops discovery in first line)

Not good enough but:

1. ... Be5
2. Qxe5 and now the mate threat is unstoppable.
... Qf4
3. Qxg7+ Qxg7
4. Rxg7+ Kh8
5. Rg6#

On to the "easier" problem.

Posted by: Deep State is in DEEP SHIT at April 13, 2019 06:44 PM (BqBId)

173 Welp...I got nuthin' for the fishing thread, so-


Saw "Hellboy" yesterday.

I don't get all the critic hate for this one (unless they're all del Toro fanboyz).

This is a movie that just wants to entertain you and goes all out trying to do it.

You know how every time there's a superman or Batman reboot, they gotta give you the origin story all over again.

And how you wished they'd just get to the "present day" story.

Welp, that's exactly what "Hellboy" does. This movie is a bit like "Hey, here's what a week in Hellboy's life is like."

There's an overarching end of the world plot as well as a few sub-plots to keep the action going. Very little slow down- if it ain't one thing it's another. Again this movie really wants to entertain you.

Excellent acting by all involved. Nice fast moving plot with interesting side-trips that all fit in. Great action and gore. Baba Yaga sequences are creepy as hell. Giant fight awesomely awesome. The opening of Hell on Earth horrific. And much much more. Nice humor. Some great twists.

Excellent CGI except when it's not- I'm looking at you "talking with the dead" sequence.

Very much a popcorn movie and a rollicking good time. Solid B+ or perhaps A-.

Rotten Tomatoes has horrible ratings from the critics, but the viewer's ratings are overwhelmingly positive. The critics got this one wrong.

Check it out.

People endlessly point out that the memoirs were penned from Churchill's perspective, and may not be 100% unbiased in their presentation of fact.

Okay, well, so what? That hardly amounts to an invalidation. There exists no comparable compilation of which I am aware. The inclusion of copious verbatim memos from the time alone render the reading worth it.

Moreover, I find nowhere any misrepresentation of salient facts. I regard all six volumes as well worth the read, and most especially the first volume, 'The Gathering Storm'. That should be regarded as 'must-read' for anyone interested in the 20th century, which is how we got to where we are now.

Yeah. My dentist when I was a kid was a sadist. I fondly recall the time he shot novacaine (FU spellcheck - fix it or shut the hell up) at the back of my jaw, and the needle had a barb on it, and it was pulling a nerve out with it. I was screaming and he told me to shut up.

Aside from the orthodontist, I neve saw a dentist again till I was in the Army. Oddly, they were good dentists.

I'm recycling a comment from a couple of years ago, but one of the evolutions in 19th century Europe was duelling trickling down from the aristocracy to the more ordinary folk.

(One of my favourite German words) There was a term for it: satisfaktionsfahig, which meant to be of sufficient honour to challenge or accept a duel.

My childhood dentist would lie about needles. Flat out say he didn't use a needle and had this technique where he hid the needle behind one of those little mirrors they use.

I saw right through it. He was supposed to be a good children's dentist.

272 A synopsis of the TV show The Good Fight


The show primarily deals with the storylines of its three female leads - Diane, Lucca, and Maia - and contains considerable political and social commentary, exploring topical issues such as the alt-right, the Me Too movement, online harassment, and fake news. As well as starting again in a new firm with its own office politics to deal with, longtime Democrat Diane must navigate a world she hardly recognizes, becoming increasingly troubled by Trump-era politics and the actions of his administration.

274 I had a dentist drill a tooth and put in a filling and he never gave me novocain. Also had an oral surgeon chisel a how in my sinus taking out an impacted wisdom tooth. He said 'Chief, don't worry about it It'll grow shut over time.' It did grow shut after awhile. Oddly enough this was a LCDR in Norfolk. My only beef with Navy medicine ever.

I wonder how Aunt Becky will look in an orange jumpsuit.

Dan Bongino was subbing for Hannity last night and a couple of lawyers on, some of the crew Greta van Sustern used to have on, and asked them what would they advise Aunt Becky to do now.

One said, he'd march her down to Footlocker, get her a pair of good running shoes, and tell her to run her butt down to the federal prosecutor's office and beg for mercy.

317 I see that Stratolaunch's giant aircraft made its first test flight today. It has the largest wingspan of any airplane ever built.

It was designed to launch satellite-carrying rockets at high altitudes, but most of those projects have been cancelled, leaving it without much to do. Hopefully it won't become the 21st Century's equivalent of the Spruce Goose.
