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.

Tournaments

There are chess tournaments in the club continuously.
Now single round-robin, class based tournaments run only. They are class based that ensures players in similar ratings play each other. The games run simultaneously in round-robin tournaments, so a seven player event means 6 games in one time.
There are single class tournaments, where players of each 200 points class play each other. These events are always for 7 players.
And there are multi-class tournaments also, where players from 3 neighbor classes can play in. These are always for 9 players.

Whenever a tournament fills up, another one starts with the same parameters.

To protect serious players, new members can enter for tournaments after they have finished 5 games in order, and if their reliability factor is not below the value of 5.

In more details on the Tournaments page.
