wow. put the original puzzle into fritz, fritz thinks it is a draw.
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 :
Here is another with Queens and there is zugzwang too:
white to play and win
Awesomly impossible the best puzzle ever!
Yes, this is the solution , may be just one line to add:
Black pawns can move different :
What if black moves pawn "a" :
I think i found the solution - here is something to help in solving :
Cool, so Kc4 in your rebuttal of what I posted was your error.
Yes,this was my mistake .
Mrguy888, you took the right direction from the beginning - post full solution when decide .
Nobody posts solution for #296 so i will post what i think it can be:
First white play 1.Kc2 and if black doesn't play 1...h5 the solution is like Nswwsn and Caielo showed in #299 and #300 .
If black play 1...h5 then solution follows Mrguy888's line in #297 :
oh yes ;-)
Smiley has to say is the solution correct.
And here is another puzzle :
white to play and draw
