its clear puzzle. thanks
Cool, I would resign in such a situation and it is possible to win, I dont believe my eyes.
Classic king-in-the-corner mate!
In live-chess I would not have hesitated to go for a draw with KC5. This line would come as a surprise for me, if I had missed it :-) Fine :-)
Nice endgame puzzle.
Brilliantly played by black to get into such a position... Wouldn't put it past myself!
well that was interesting. first mate I've seen with just a bishop.
Quite easy when you think about it, as white's moves all speak for themselves, because each white move leaves black with only one legal response until checkmate.
beast one until now played
this should be considered (in an actual game) a helpmate right?
No, from the given set up the mate is quite forced - Black never had an alternative move at any stage. For it to be a helpmate you would have to show that Black had alternatives and only chose those that helped White.
Could be called "Patiently Mating"?
good endgame puzzle
Black has to be a stupid to loose this one
