I wonder how many there are... since there is at least one more I know of... but only one more I know of... and I did not expect your first one!

This I guess should be a mate in three 🙂 At least that'swhat it looks like 1...Nh3 and 2...Nf2 and 3...Rh1#
Hmm, how do you insert a diagram?

Get a Fen Position like this one....

8/8/7r/8/5n2/5k2/7R/7K b - - 0 1

Now, next to 'insert smiley' and 'insert link to game' you will find a third link called:

'Insert board from FEN'

paste the Fen in there and it shows up in the thread.

You can do a reply and quote to my fen board, and you will see something like

[f en]8/8/7r/8/5n2/5k2/7R/7K b - - 0 1[/f en]

with no spaces... that is how they get plugged.

You left one rank out... you only list 7 ranks, and the board is blank.

Finally, hehehe, I feel smart 😉 Okay, so White to playa and mate in 3.
