    Usually the satisfaction of actually solving one of these things is enough.
    Here the composer, J. Moller 1917, gives you another wee treat in the shape of the final position.


    White (playing up the board as normal) to play and mate in three moves.
    The 1st move is not a check.
    The 2nd move is a check.
    The 3rd move is checkmate.

    Anyone who solves it (it's pretty easy) just post the final fen.
