Had to be the music…

Had ELO playing throughout the tourney! Wes, check it out! I’d have gone undefeated except for my old-man lack of bladder control in the last round!

Combination Challenge #629

Wes says he’s happy with a ‘once-a-week’ problem. I can do that.

This a new chapter from Combination Challenge. The motif is ‘diversion’. For those who don’t know what that means, here’s the intro to chapter 8:

Diversion is a motif in which we divert an enemy piece from an important post. Once the piece is diverted we can then exploit the new setting to attack other vital elements of the opponent’s position.

Part of the intro. I’m really not interested typing more. Here’s the problem…

Comments

Wes might like this. Some comments I made on chess.com

cruithni: Bd6 is almost always a bad move

cruithni: e5 is really looking attractive

cruithni: just need to kick your bishop back to d6

cruithni: Aw… Bd6 was my favorite

cruithni: I will go for the classic bishop sac though

cruithni: freebie!

I’ll post the game later. Ain’t over yet.

I won. The game is here. (wish this worked like on Facebook. Then you’d see what I think is flash movie of the game.)

Combination Challenge #70

Another pin problem. From chapter 2 of Combination Challenge.

image
Black to move.

Graphics courtesy of Exachess

Wes got this one. Is anyone keeping score?

1. … Bxf2+
2. Kf1 …

If the King captures the Bishop, White drops his Queen with 2. … Qxe5 because the White knight is pinned to the King.

2. … Bxe1 and Black is up material and should win. White’s pawns in particular are gonna be snapped up.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
