What I want to know is: are there any problems in chess that remain unsolved?

  • You mean strictly regarding the game itself, or in a broader sense, meaning the sporting aspect, i.e. match rules, how to train or study, etc.? – A. N. Other Dec 23 '18 at 17:41

You can try finding the perfect Babson: compose a problem with four main lines. They consist of a defensive promotion of a black pawn to a queen, rook, bishop or knight, which forces White to promote to the same piece type in each case.

Examples already exist, but they involve duals, which make them imperfect.

Is there a forced win for White?

Is it good or not for chess and the players if the World Championship match could be eventually decided by rapid, blitz, and armageddon?
