    Hi Guys,

    This is my first post, so just like to say I love this site!

    If you enjoyed this puzzle try the following (also ends in draw):

    Yeah - white's trying to draw. This position illustrates that a king can move diagonally just as quickly as in a straight line, thus covering a longer distance. Here's another interesting puzzle I found.
