    I'm not being sarcastic or anything...
    This puzzle is appropriate for mostly IMs and GMs, but anyone has the possibility to solve it
    I don't really know how to get an image to show up, but here's the link:

    Perhaps people would like to see it here...



    EDIT:Are you sure it's for GM's and IM's only?

    EDIT2:To make a board show up here, you must use the 'insert board from FEN' function. Here is the code for this particular position - r3k3/p1p5/Q3K3/8/1N3BPP/6p1/6N1/8. It shows which pieces are on which squares and which squares are empty. r3k3 is a8 to h8. p1p5 is a7 to h7 and so on. Capital letters are for white pieces and the rest are for black pieces. The numbers resemble to a number of empty squares on a line. P - pawn, R- rook, N - knight, B - bishop, K - king, Q - queen. For example the first part r3k3 means that there is a black rook on a8, b8 to d8 are empty, black king on e8 and f8 to h8 are empty.

    It's not one of the more difficult puzzles we have had here.

    Yeah, I agree. After the first move there aren't very much variations, and only a single mating pattern.

    Alas, your second line is flawed: 1.Qc6+ Kf8 2.Bh6+ Kg8

    I think the answer is Qa1. It's not a very tricky puzzle really.

    Let´s see if this is a bit harder.

    A game starts 1 e4 and ends on move five when a knight takes a rook, delivering mate. What is the game?

    Perhaps that's why the puzzle is supposed to be difficult. It's clear that Black's last move must have been a king or rook move, hence O-O-O is impossible.

    Can Black castle? If he can't, it's very easy, and I'm not 2400+. More like 1500+!
