Time ago, I read on your site in one of your pages you mention that Blathy, Otto (1860-1939) is credited with the creation of the longest Chess problem: a checkmate in 290 moves.

I've had searching in many places including your site and I just can't find it. My curiosity is immense and I would like to know if you can provide me with that problem to try to solve it myself or at least to have the pleasure to find out what makes it hard to solve in 290 moves.

Keep up the good work, your site is very interesting and I'll wait for your answer.

Dear viewer,
