    @BigDoggProblem Unless I'm miscounting White pawn captures (8) versus missing Black men (4), the 292 move puzzle is also illegal.

    It's not that computers can't see triangulation. It's that they have trouble seeing 290 moves ahead outside of an endgame tablebase.

    Probably engines with unlimited depth and infinite analysis can solve the puzzle comprehensively.

    Either the mate in 2 is not there, or you entered the position incorrectly (for instance, "forgetting" to mention possible en passant captures...)
