This is a very ingenious problem I found in a Sunday newspaper (don't start to looking I wont tell You) .White to move and draw. I don't put the solution yet,so set Your board and try to solve,better no moving the pieces. I will post
Seeing as he can't catch the a pawn, it looks like white can use the f and h pawns to deflect the g pawns (similar to the classic 3 vs 3 breakthrough idea) and promote the g pawn. I'm doing something wrong though because it looks like white can win.
The first diagram is surely wrong: white has an easy win with either 1.f5 or 1.h5.
I guess the idea is pushing f5, taking on g6 and then putting the king on h5 and stalemating him with g2-g4. Nice one, but not a serious option if you can win easily!
Is my mistake! Here is the right position
here is the right position more dificult for white
It would have been much prettier with a pawn on b5 instead of a6, since Black promotes to queen, and then it cannot do anything to prevent stalemate.
