Notes

Moves are in UCI format. Use a chess library to convert them to SAN, for display.

All player moves of the solution are "only moves". I.e. playing any other move would considerably worsen the player position. An exception is made for mates in one: there can be several. Any move that checkmates should win the puzzle.

FEN is the position before the opponent makes their move.
The position to present to the player is after applying the first move to that FEN.
The second move is the beginning of the solution.

You can find a list of themes, their names and descriptions, in this file.

Generating these chess puzzles took more than 25 years of CPU time.
We went through 150,000,000 analysed games from the Lichess database, and re-analyzed interesting positions with Stockfish 12 NNUE at 40 meganodes. The resulting puzzles were then automatically tagged. To determine the rating, each attempt to solve is considered as a Glicko2 rated game between the player and the puzzle. Finally, player votes refine the tags and define popularity.

Notes

About 6% of the games include Stockfish analysis evaluations: [%eval 2.35] (235 centipawn advantage), [%eval #-4] (getting mated in 4), always from White's point of view.

The WhiteElo and BlackElo tags contain Glicko2 ratings.

Games contain clock information as PGN %clk comments since April 2017.

Variant games have a Variant tag, e.g., [Variant "Antichess"].

Known issues

Extract bz2 files

Unix: pbzip2 -d filename.pgn.bz2 (faster than bunzip2)
Windows: use 7zip

Open PGN files

Traditional PGN databases, like SCID or ChessBase, fail to open large PGN files. Until they fix it, you can split the PGN files, or use programmatic APIs such as python-chess or Scoutfish.
