    Don't you mean the game posted by cheetahch in post #90 ?  If so, ...Kh8 is one of the mistakes people make - it has to be g8.  After  1...Kh8 ..

    1. Kh5 Kh8 2. Kh6 Kg8 3. g7 Kf7 4. Kh7 Kf6 5. g8=Q

    And a drawn position is turned into a win for White !!

    A perfect Sunday problem.  Fun, not difficult, not stupid. Also the first black to move I remember.  Thank you.
