— Open Blogger

"Come on, move already! I ain't got all day."


Good afternoon morons and moronettes, and welcome to the Saturday Afternoon Chess/Open Thread, the only AoSHQ thread with content specifically for all of us chess nerds who pay homage in the temple of Caïssa, goddess of the chessboard. Also, dress pr0n. Each week, I pick out a few lovely, modest, conservative dresses for the 'ettes to admire and appraise. And, for those of you who aren't nerdly enough for chess, you can use this thread to talk about checkers, or other games, or politics, or whatever you wish, only please try to keep it civil. Nobody wants to get in the middle of a pie fight on a Saturday afternoon, unless you like old-school madness and mayhem.


Problem 1 - Black To Play (587)

Hint: Black wins material

What about your chess GAINZZZ, brah?

Problem 2 - White To Play (588 )

Hint: White wins material

Fun Fact

Prior to the 1800s, Oxford University outlawed chess, calling it "noxious, inordinate and unhonest." Its chess club was formed in 1869.

Problem 3 - White To Play (BWTC 59)

Hint: White mates in 5

Man and Machine

Interesting piece by Garry Kasparov on losing a chess game to an AI. It's not as bad as you think:

Deep Blue was conclusive proof that machines could surpass humans in complex cognitive tasks that we had long assumed were unique to our developed brains. Using chess as a metaphor, I discuss this important distinction in my recent book Deep Thinking. Deep Blue could look at 200 million positions per second, while I was limited to two or three, and yet we competed equally. The human brain is an unmatched analogy engine, finding useful patterns to leverage our lifetime of experience to make decisions.

Garry might have lost a few games to Deep Blue, but he did a lot more with less. No matter how good the brute force engines get, there's something about human intelligence that they haven't quite captured.

Problem 4 - White To Play (585)

Hint: White mates in 7

Endgame of the Week (583)

It's White to play. Can he pull his fat out of the fire?

Hint: Underpromotion is the difference between a draw and a win

Solutions Update

Problem 1 - Black To Play


20171007 - Problem 1.jpg
2q3k1/5pp1/2n5/4p3/3P4/1Q3N2/4KP2/8 b - - 0 1

Black wins the knight simply by attacking it:

1...e4!
2.Ke3 exf3

If White tries to save the knight with, say, 2.Ng5 then Black wins with 2...Nxd4+, a forking attack on White's queen and king. Black loses either knight or queen. Either way, he loses.


Problem 2 - White To Play

20171007 - Problem 2.jpg
2r2r2/1p1b1pk1/pqn1pnpp/3pN3/8/N1P2Q1P/PP3PP1/R1B1R1K1 w - - 0 1

1. Qxf6+ Kxf6
2. Nxd7+ and wins with the forking attack.

You might have been looking at 1.Bxh6+ Kxh6 2.Qxf6, but after 2...Nxe5 3.Rxe5, Black has either 3...Qxb2, or 3...Qd8 forcing the trade of queens. In either case, material is roughly equal and White has accomplished nothing. No, 1.Qxf6+ is the move you want.


Problem 3 - White To Play

20171007 - Problem 3.jpg
r1bqrk2/pp1n1n1p/3p1p2/P1pP1P1Q/2PpP1NP/6R1/2PB4/4RBK1 w - - 0 1

Pretty straightforward:

1.Qxf7+ Kxf7
2.Nh6+ Kf8
3.Rg8+ Ke7
4.Rg7+ Kf8
5.Rf7#


Problem 4 - White To Play

20171007 - Problem 4.jpg
rn3rk1/pbppq1pp/1p2pb2/4N2Q/3PN3/3B4/PPP2PPP/R3K2R w KQ - 0 1

This is basically a king chase

1.Qxh7+ Kxh7
2.Nxf6+ Kh6

If 2...Kh8 then 3.Ng6#.

3.Neg4+ Kg5
4.h4+ Kf4
5.g3+ Kf3
6.O-O

Lasker-Thomas 1912, the game from where this problem originated, was one move longer: 6.Be2+ Kg2 7.Rh2+ Kg1 8.Kd2#

6...b5
7.Nh2#


Endgame of the Week

20171007 - Endgame.jpg
8/6P1/8/8/2p5/5K2/3p4/k7 w - - 0 1

1.Ke2

White's only move to stave off disaster.

1...c3

Forced.

2. g8=R!

The key move. And it takes a lot of foresite to see. 2.g8=Q? is the wrong approach because of 2...d1=Q+ 3.Kxd1 c2+ 4.Kc1 and stalemate.

2...d1=Q+

If 2...Kb2, then 3.Rg1 Kc2 4.Rf1 Kb3 5.Kd3 Kb4 (5...Kb2 6.Rd1 Kb3 7.Rb1+) 6.Kc2 Kb5 7.Kxc3

3.Kxd1 c2+
4.Kxc2 with mate to follow.


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 past it into your chess app.

10 Golly, hate to go off topic before 100, but... Just got back from Blade Runner 2049. After one viewing, going to give it a "meh". Color palate sucked.... lots of greys and tans. Soundtrack... it ain't no Vangelis. And if you thought the original Blade Runner was slow... this is probably not the movie for you then. Having said that, I have a feeling that this might be one of those films you have to see several times for it to grow on you. Gosling does a great job, carrying the bulk of the film.

24 Since this *is* the game thread, I want to thank those who have joined our WoW guilds this week. It has been a lot of fun running with new people. Both guilds are called ValU Rite Pudding and are on PvE worlds. The Alliance guild is on Rexxar and the Horde guild is on Hellscream. Either Inspector Cussword or I will be on most of the weekend if anyone is interested in joining.

Too many prima donnas on that team, especially Harper. And I never thought much of Baker as a manager. That team SHOULD take it all. Not even the Dodgers should match them, but it won't shock anybody if the Cubs win this series (although I'm rooting for them not to... sorry, it's the Cubs, it would violate the basic tenets of my faith to not root for them to lose).

Aaaannnnddd thread winner!!

You called it exactly. The game this is from is Lasker (Ed.) vs. G.A. Thomas, 1912 (some sources say 1913).

Your solution was the line Lasker used, but actually there's a faster solution.

Nice work.

105 I don't think Harper is a headcase but I do think Baker is a crappy manager. He gets one good year out of a team then its downhill and he kills pitchers. Just ask Cubs fans about Kerry Wood. The Nationals are good but I think the Cubs are better, and better managed. I just don't think they are good enough to get past the Diamondbacks or Dodgers this year.

Posted by: rickl at October 07, 2017 01:13 PM (sdi6R)

179 Blade Runner is heavy on visuals, music and atmosphere, and so can be slow moving. It also doesn't care about making the plot clear, which led to the controversy of Harrison Ford doing a voice over to try to make the plot clearer, which is in some of the ninety different cuts, but not in others. Many viewers, me included, find it profound and worth repeat viewings. Rutger Hauer ad-libbed a lot of his "I've seen things ..." scene, which is one of the best in cinema.

189 Blade Runner definitely improves on subsequent viewings. I mean I loved it at first viewing for the immersive future noir world, the visual richness of it, the music. But it's the heartbreaking scene where Zhora tries desperately to cling to what little life she has left that always gets me.

Posted by: OregonMuse, AoSHQ Thought Leader & Culture Producer at October 07, 2017 06:23 PM (CSgvE) To me it is a better story if he is not. His lack of empathy- while still being human- puts the lie to the idea that the replicants are profoundly different from humanity. The whole- "he's a replicant" is due to the fact that he is a kind of broken, empty guy. If he is supposed to be a replicant, it comes off more as cheap victimization without the underlying complexity and moral questions. IMO.

Posted by: Aetius451AD Work Laptop at October 07, 2017 01:27 PM (rb1zT)

203 One thing about Blade Runner is that you aren't supposed to like the Deckard character. He's the bad guy. but Harrison Ford played him so well and sympathetically that you like him, and the voiceover helps connect you to him and care.

variation 2
1, Ke2   Kb2
2. g8/Q (not Kxd2? because c3+ and the black pawn queens before white's pawn)
2.   ...     c3
3.  Qg7, preventing e2, followed by Qg1

234 I never know how to work the problems. The chess.com Tactics drills I understand - I'm abysmal at them, but the concept is pretty straightforward. Here's a position snapshot - make the best move possible. Sometimes there's a counter-move, and you respond to that, but that's as far as it goes. When I see the problems and it's something like "black mates in four", I never know how I'm supposed to presume white's moves. By the grace of God I put my pants on the right way most mornings; I can't be trusted to project the opponent's moves as well as my own that far into the future.

No, Quinn is a chick, not a confused man. But her real name is Gladys Finkleburger, or something like that. She wrote a crappy game after which she banged 5 gamer journalists to get some good reviews after which she painted herself as a victim.

Posted by: Tammy al-Thor at October 07, 2017 06:42 PM (SAlss) I cant speak for all men, but the past 5 years has been eye opening to just how over sexualized men are at a young age as boys. It really is a nice dose of freedom once, I was able to decondition myself from thing sex and a relationships with women was the endgame and purpose in life. its a smart strategy as a way to control the masses through hyper-sexualization. Also its loneliness. That's what I miss the most about abstaining from relationships. Its the moments at the beginning when there is trust and you have somebody to share life with and talk to. Men are already using Alexa to talk to. Then you have the movie Her. Also, I believe their are other AI type things in Asia that men use for companionship that don't involve sex and cant.

343 Here's the thing. Honestly, it is nice to hear ladies say nice things to us, encourage us, build us up. Unfortunately, the more common experience for myself and a lot of other guys is one of nagging, complaint, perpetual dissatisfaction, and raged out arguments over perceived slights from four years, three months, two weeks, three days, 11 hours and 27 minutes ago. Also gaslighting, cold shoulder and frigidity. So if a guy can't get something nice from a live woman, why not then from machine?

353 Early in the 21st Century, THE TYRELL CORPORATION advanced robot evolution into the NEXUS phase - a being virtually identical to a human - known as a Replicant. The NEXUS 6 Replicants were superior in strength and agility, and at least equal in intelligence, to the genetic engineers who created them. Replicants were used Off-World as slave labor, in the hazardous exploration and colonization of other planets. After a bloody mutiny by a NEXUS 6 combat team in an Off-World colony, Replicants were declared illegal on earth - under penalty of death. Special police squads - BLADE RUNNER UNITS - had orders to shoot to kill, upon detection, any trespassing Replicant This was not called execution. It was called retirement.

This is the conundrum. We are supposed to be monogamous, "settle down" "be faithful" "love cherish honor blah blah".

If we do not base evaluations of intimate relationships on the experiences with those that we are married to and/or  intimate with, who then should we base our evaluation on?

Allegories?

Willing to bet that the real numbers are probably reversed. Women are and will be much more likely to have sex with robots than men. The sex robot that men would want to schtup is going to be a much more complicated device than the one that women will schtup. Women are are already buying and using many times more sex toys than men.

However, after ten years as a divorced man, I know I don't need a woman to make me happy. I'm now in my early 50s, have the textbook defintion of a "dad bod", and I'm not making a lot of money. I'll probably never be anyone's first choice. I'm OK with that. And if I do turn out to be some woman's first choice someday...I'm OK with that, too. One day at a time, my friends.

We are older and I have learned to say, I don't need you to fix my problem, I need to vent for 5 minutes and want you to agree with me. This has solved 99 percent of our arguments.

If 2. Rg7, Be3 is now available to defend f7, while the e2 escape space remains open in case of Rg8

Strategically, the white knight Nh6 blocks its bishop from d2 from entering the arena without loss of tempo

417 Tammy, I agree men are simple creatures, feed them, sleep with them, and don't nag them. My husband would not be happy with a subservient yes woman either. He likes that I challenge him. He wants my opinion. We work well as a team. We started our business together. We balance each other. We both have different strengths and weaknesses.

It took me awhile to appreciate the beauty of a man who draws a line and refuses to cross it.  First annoyance, but over time respect for that.  I was a bitch in my first marriage (not without a lot of provocation) and I decided that I was never, ever going to accept that role again.  Man's gotta be strong enough to respect.  Once you become the bitch, you've lost the respect, and never get it back.


I used to hate that saying "being right isn't always the most important thing."  Well, in the family I was raised in, it was EVERYTHING.  Took me years to get over that.

Even Chandler admitted he had no idea who killed the chauffeur, for instance, but its kind of a straight forward mystery underneath a lot of twists and turns.

494 Anna, I have always believed him to be a human. The conceit was that this human was an empty unfeeling husk compared to the passionate replicants who only lived briefly, but "burned brightly", and that he learned to empathize with them as people, becoming himself a better person in the process. Decker has clearly aged (but might the new replicants also age?) and I assume they didn't create a male replicant with living sperm to reproduce.

495 I used to hate that saying "being right isn't always the most important thing." Well, in the family I was raised in, it was EVERYTHING. Took me years to get over that. Posted by: Miley, the Duchess - call me! Only $7.99/minute! at October 07, 2017 07:26 PM (bjlHK) Yeah, I was exposed to a great deal of that myself. Problem is, like I said, it's a very dangerous thing for men these days to stand up for themselves, and I'm not even talking about dispensing a bitchslap. Yell back, tell her to STFU, walk out, don't say or do anything at all, can all be cast as abuse. I'm not kidding either, look up the Duluth Model which is pretty much adopted by all organizations involved in the DV industry.

520 once the experts in my case after a couple of years saw each of us for what we were and I was not the aggressor but victim along with the children, I called out the Duluth Model to these experts and they were like "oh. yeah. I think I've heard of that." completely busted and they knew it. Every freaking psychologist and expert all played it off like a kid caught with their hands in the cookie jar. I was assumed to be guilty because I was a man and it took years to correct that crap in part because of the Duluth Model. Also my lawyer is red pilled and now even more so and an advocate of MGTOW as far as marriage and even relationships. And my lawyer is a woman. let that sink in.

529 An odd little dress pron thing that popped up recently. I took my 2 daughters on a vacation in Mexico in the 90s and bought them traditional Mexican  dresses.  So now one is married to a guy with Mexican heritage. And his family is all excited that my daughter has a picture of her in  traditional Mexican dress at 7. Strange in my eyes this is important. But kinda lucky for her. Oh my daughters (5and7) looked very cute in their dresses

Children are resilient; they just need to know they're loved. And, despite every possible excuse to do so, mama never badmouthed daddy to me.

It's good your mother didnt trash your father in front of you. Parental alienation of any kind hurts the child more than the parent the other is trying to get back at.

564 My mama is not vindictive in the least. I am appalled at what I see divorced parents of both sexes do to their children, just for the sake of revenge. I could tell you stories from my childhood that'd make your hair curl, but I came through it okay, because I knew I was adored. Just let those babies know how much you love them, how important they are to you.

In all honesty, people who are hurting need to vent.  Even when we already know because they've already told us.

Thank you, WP.  I think having compassion for the suffering of others is a good way for me to reenter life, after a long time being apart from it.  It's a gift that can be shared even in this limited medium.


I understand that your situation requires that you be very cautious, but I was thinking about what you said about writing articles.  I'm not much for articles, but I was thinking a novel that explores this issue is sorely needed.  If it's possible - and I understand if it's not - I'd appreciate an email (in my nic) with some places to begin my research.

590 For your endgame, white might as well promote to the queen and accept the stalemate, because if he promotes to a rook instead, he'll be working hard to get that same stalemate.  Here's why: 2...Kb2  (There's no reason for black to hand over his pawns).  Now if white moves his king, black gets a queen (3. Kg1 pc2+).  So white moves his rook.  And now the black king spends his time between c1, c2, and b2.  And white keeps his rook on the d column.  Black waits for white to screw up so he can get a queen.  If white doesn't screw up, then after 50 moves with no progress, stalemate.  Or white gets tired and trades his rook for both pawns, to speed up the stalemate.

591 #590 I discussed 2...Kb2 in the solutions update.
