what on earth is FEN format ??
FEN is the format that computers use to set the position of a game. You can use FEN to set up puzzles! Open up the game you want to use, copy the FEN on the right side of the screen, and paste it into the box that says "Use an FEN string" after you click the puzzle option. The computer will then set up the game!
I like J.Ward vs ??? Easy but, but I missed the easiest move of the Queen and a first time for me was obvious the Queen appeared in front of the King. thanks J.ward
Mate in 2
Puzzle was made by B.G. Laws
I submitted my puzzle to the daily puzzles. :) I also have it posted here:
It is not a mate in 330 lol It is a mate in 3. :)
Black can do En passant.
forkman, you missed a mate in one and your mate is totally unforced and much longer than neccessary. Chessnoob you also missed a mate in one.
easy mate in 1
Thanks Joseph, cool and easy to find a solution.
