Usually when people post a tactical puzzle in here it's over my level and I have little chance of solving it. We have a lot of members rated in the low-mid teens, and I think I'd like to start posting interesting ones for us to solve.
So how do I go about posting the FEN and the PGN for the solution? For posting my games I use the 'copy pgn' feature, but that won't work for posting external positions.

Once you have the game in your chess GUI program you can copy
any position you wish and post it with [fen]position[fen]
The second fen must be [/fen].
Do a 'Reply & Quote' and you will see how it's done.
White to play.

Position reached 6 times on here - twice White has missed the shot
and then went onto lose.

1. Bb5+ and whatever he blocks it with he looses the knight.
A new one, this one should be easy for you though....

I really like this one, it may be hard to spot for someone around 1400 but it is a nice puzzle, I remember this one fondly (also, the pattern is one to remember, I had many quick knock-outs against lower rated players by using this trick):
