And this kills it all:
Yes,here the things are not clear :
About the puzzle #117, Icy 001 you are probably right
White to play and win
I have just spent half an hour doing this!!!!
XD Oh my.
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!
I solved this position on tactics trainer recently.
I don't remember players or (more likely) author of this study. But this is in chess.com database !

Well since no-one has answered puzzle #247, I'll post my solution:
lol pawn mate :) good puzzle
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 a puzzle that is mine,but is not very hard :
Mate in 2 moves

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
