    What's to solve? White is winning comfortably.

    If you want a Mate in X moves, then say it.

    As has been suggested beforehand you really need to give the stipulation for the problem (there are a couple of very rare ones which can get away without a clear stipulation, but this isn't one of them).

    If I were to give you this one, for example, what is the solution here?



    There is no point giving the first move either, that has a tendency to render the problem pointless as it's very often spotting the unusual move here which makes it difficult.

    A minor point, but it's nice to see a diagram in the thread as well.

    (For anyone who doesn't recognise the above problem, don't spend any time over it without knowing what's required)

    It's perfectly fine on this one. Enclose it within the tags [ fen ] and [ /fen ] (remove the spaces to post here). You can only include one per post.

    There are a few more pieces of information which go after the position, but these are unecessary for posting a problem.


    The comments from myself and others about the stipulation still stand though. It's really essential for anyone trying to solve your problem.

    Your problem could therefore become:



    White to move and mate in three.


    (to see how I've written the position, hit reply and quote).
