    What are the odds this really hot girl I know will break up with her boyfriend?

    This thread is dangerously close to having nothing at all to do with chess or puzzles. Thus, I've reworded it in a more appropriate manner:

    White to play and seperate the black king from the black queen in 2.

    The queen not on the board counts as being seperated, yes?

    If you take the queen, it's the equivalent of killing the "very hot girl" which I assume isn't this guy's intention.

    1. Qc7+
    1...Ke4 2. Qf4+
    1...Qd6 2. Nxg7 and black must move his king away.

    argh, cooked. I was looking for:
    [Editted out answer]

    Ah well, at least I improved the thread marginally...

    well done dejection.

    edit: wait, not well done. Qc7+ KxN!

    Hm. Dammit. This means it is not cooked, so you don't need to edit out your answer.

    it is still cooked, but key move is 1.Ng5, stopping the king from moving.

    Pretty good, but not necessarily right now. You need to start working on her so that when they have the big fight you're the one she turns to for comfort and revenge.

    No, it's his intention to take her for himself I am sure.

    Here is an idea inspired by David113 thread Series selfmate in 42 that seems to be inline with the original post.

    white to move and selfmate by the queen.



    I'm sure someone can improve this significantly.
