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.

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.

PGN Format

The PGN format is a standard way to describe a chess game.
It contains players' data such as names, ratings, country codes, the date, and site of the game, and contains the moves also that have been taken in the game, and the result of the game also.
The game can be in progress too, in this case its result is "*", later it usually changes to "1-0", "0-1" or "1/2-1/2".
Please find the detailed description of the PGN format here.
The server understands the PGN format, it can send and receive moves in this format.

Many softwares use this format to exchange games, those too which are used by correspondence chess players to play their games, such as ECTool, or Mailchess (more on the Links page).
