[khqsssse] Some easy chess problem types

  1. Mate in 1
  2. Series mate in 2
  3. Helpmate in 1
  4. Series mate in 3
  5. Mate in 2

Mate in N of course helps orthodox chess skills.  Series mate in N also helps in learning to make plans.  Helpmate in 1 is good for learning to avoid blundering into a mate in 1 in orthodox chess.

What next?  Find the one move that blunders into a mate in 2: this type of problem does not have a name.  It is different from helpmate in 2 because that requires blundering twice.
