this really is a very good site.
Is it possible to have an option to exclude the "mate in X" problems so that a player can just focus on the tactics? This would improve the site greatly for training purposes.
Although many of the mate in 2/3 moves are useful many of the mate in 4-5-6 are really for problem solving and of little value to a tournament player looking for tactical practice.
If a solution is only correct because it avoids suicide Q sacs etc its really not relevant to the thought process in a game....actually is quite harmful as we should be learning to quickly dismiss moves that just leave position totally lost.Also some of the mate in 5 or 6 are seriously difficult and again of little relecance even for master level tournament play.
If people want them then they can choose to solve them if the option is there.
