    As Icy 001 showed, #117  leads up only to a draw.

    #269 is an attempt at improvement of #117 . I think Elona recognised the situation!

    First move is Kf5! Qf8 etc.

    Why does the king need to move before the pawns queen? Consider:

    I quote #272 - I must say nearly all of the puzzles or positions in this topic are not mine.I have some books with puzzles and when i take from there i post the name of the author. But i have also a notebook where i have written interesting positions and puzzles i have met through the years and unfortunately i didn't record the names of the authors.I apologize for this.Some of the positions i try to complicate,but the basic idea is not mine.

    Here is what Smiley has in mind -find the best continuation for White.

    And may be a second question:

    if you can add a black pawn - where to put it ?

    Yes, the move 3.Qe3 !!  is a kind of (quiet) chess- aerobatics .Thanks to Smiley for posting this puzzle Smile

    The bad position of the King is a very important thing in these puzzles.

    In the last one even if add a black pawn on  " f5 " the result is the same - but solution is forced and not so nice :
