Finally black wins with 1...e4!
Black should not be depicted in a puzzle as going up the board, only down. There are standardizations for a reason.
After the few seconds it takes to realise which way is up, feel free to reposition yourself or your monitor. Hey, presto, the world is back in order.
Both sides played like beginners.
Were you expecting something?
that was stupidly easy.
that is too easy!
here's a thought; arrogance and ignorance prevent chess players from improving.Ratings from 'easy' comments support this.any thoughts?
I started with trying to move the pawn on the h file first, but got it on the second try. Thank you for the puzzle.
I'm terrible at end games, but thankfully, got this one easily.
easy but needs pre-calculation
