comment if u find a better result. hope u like it.
Yes, this fortress works even if black didn't have his pawn.
However 9...Qxb3 is actually a win. Even though you'll get opposition, the pawn is too far advanced for it to matter.
instead of "Kb2" it should be "Rd3" at 9th move .
how is qxb3 a win?
??? wasn't the king on b2 on move 9 according to the OP?
@metaknight251 : yeah my bad
who would of thought ? NICE WORK !
@scottrf : thx for correcting.@eddysallin: thx.
i can force Draw if i play as White when 12. ...., Qd4+
you see i can hit the queen with my rook 13. Rxd4
Black will move 13. ...., Kxd4
and it will result in
14. Kb3, Kc5
I know, but I was showing a variation at move 9.
