    why doesn't white just play Nxd4 followed by Nc2 to stop the pawn? Seems like that would be a winning position although I haven't analyzed it thoroughly

    Wow, pretty sweet how the Knight guards the f5 square which indirectly keeps the g5 square safe.  Now I see why the K returns to h2 after kicking the Rh4+ w/ Kg3.

    The solution given by the composer is a clear draw, as well as an "easy" one- provided of course that someone finds 4.Rg8!! and 5.Nh6!!, which pop up at the Houdini moves list after just a couple of hours thought... Laughing

     

    I thought that maybe you were mistaken but Houdini seems to have no idea what is going on. Even when led up to the perpetual position, the latest Hoiudini on extreme hardware doesn't grasp the concept (I didn't bother to run for hours).

     

    Thanks for showing this interesting position.

     

    p.s. Although Houdini finds choumicha's draw in less than two seconds.

    Your post clearly shows the benefits of letting more than one engine take a look at tricky positions.

     

    Stockfish found the (a) solution fairly quickly: depth 32 in 150 seconds.

    Way over my head.

    I got the first two moves just by inituitively trying to stir up counterplay, but wasn't able to see the perpetual.
