MyFavouriteProblem

A beautiful chess problem, not an easy one, you have to know all the rules of the game to solve it.
The solution can't be found here, bacuse I've submitted it to the server and don't want to help here for solving it.

The task is: white mates in one!

One sure thing: it does have solution!

Scoring

In competitive chess, a player scores one point for a win, a half-point for a draw, and zero points for a loss. So the rankings at the end of a tournament are easy to calculate by simple addition.

In the early 19th century, when modern competitive play began, draws were ignored, and a match was won by the player who first scored an agreed number of wins, or who had the most wins after an agreed number of games. With the advent of all-play-all tournaments (the first international all-play-all was held in London in 1851) draws became more important. At first, rules were devised to discourage draws, which were very unpopular with the chess public, but gradually these were dropped and draws were counted as a half-point.

Assume? Proove it. That's the big deal.

big deal. assume that black's last move was ...e5, which then allows white to capture en passant.
