# How best can be a Chess Problem?

In my opinion, there are two kind of chess players

1) One who play by the 'book'. - These people follow all the chess notations and play as per the book. Of course, they do think!

2) One who play the game for time pass - These people know the rules of the game, but are not bothered about the game notations. For example, Rc4 Be5 means nothing to them. They can't just go by the notations.

Some people fall into both the categories, partially fitting in (1) and (2).

Chess problems make anybody to think and solve. However, think of a problem that is expressed in this way

6k1/2P3p1/4p3/3b4/p7/6qP/6P1/4r1K1 w - - 0 3

Sorry, to be honest, not everybody can make the meaning of this position. There can be so many other ways, through which a notation can be arrived, but nothing is as great as simply visualizing the moves. Anybody learns better when the moves are provided in the form of a picture. A picture is worth a thousand words.

I was searching the web looking for some sites that gives the chess problems and the solutions in a diagramatic way. I stumbled across this link today. What is really special in this? The problem is not depicted as notations and the solution is presented in the form of a video. This will really make people to understand the moves in a better way. I'm embedding one of the solutions here to give you a feel of it.

It would have been nice if annotations are also supported in this link. This can help in understanding the variations in the game easily. If you really like to solve the chess problems in the way that I mentioned, make sure you check this link. A web based chess notation interpreter would also be really helpful in this case. We can embed the game on the fly :)
