Computers think for a very long time before solving that one, but a human can make it in little time.
Not sure if the program glitched when you were using it or something, but it doesn't give the position as a draw - it shows Kc5 as a win in 21.
Indeed, now it gives win in 21. I guess it was a temporary electro-brainfart. Thanks for it, I have corrected the description.
that is excellent command of the king.
good composition but rather difficult for a five man composition!
Now when this position pops up, I'll just say 'Mate in 29. are you really sure you want to continue with this?"
It's amazing that there is exactly one winning (as in not a draw) first move for white. And again on moves 4, 5, and 7.
I would like to work more on these zugzwang, triangulation things,
and pfren, silly question alert,
are composed puzzles more helpful, so as to stress on a certain endgame topic, or are puzzles from actual game situations better set-up to focus on an endgame subject
Valeu Mestre ! Interessante !!!
Wonderful puzzle!! Exactly the kind im lookinf for. Do ou have any advice on how to improve from 1599 FIDE to 2000 Fide in 2-3 years
