My favourite chess problem

Many years ago, searching for the Internet over chess problem, I bumped into a very interesting piece.
Find it on the bottom as a FEN row, clicking on it the board will also appear.

The task is: white mates in one!

Can't be too hard, I thought, but scrolling over the possibilities the solution just didn't come up.
I check everything once more, then again, and again, and once I found another way that was hidden for me before. The solution also hid there. It became my favourite chess problem then, but of course, it's true, there are many many beautiful problems out there.

2N4P/P1k5/P1PN1PnP/4R3


This was the first problem I submitted to the server. Some players can solve it, some don't. Some believe there is no valid solution.
So, check this problem if you want. And enjoy.


The following list contains all the stories gathered from here and there.

Digest Mode

Since we can have many simultaneous games here, moves of our opponents' usually come all the day, sometimes disturbing us in our regular work, in having time with our family or else.

The digest mode tries to solve this problem: the moves will not be sent to us immediately, but will be put into our queue instead. Then the queued messages will be sent out at the given one or more hours of the day in one message.

This way we can set, for example, that no message from the server of the club will disturb us during the day, but later, all the today's moves will come in one digest message.
