    hard🎃

  • #103

    Very interesting combination.

  • #104

    Got it first try!

  • #105

    After Daily Puzzle told me that 1.b5 was incorrect, seeing the correct sequence to solved was very easy.

    Black is now in the sad position of having to move his king back, allowing me to advance my king to hopefully escorrt my b-pawn to the 8th rank.  That may be trivial, but I still wish it had contnued to that point.

    why doesn't black take the f4 pawn?

  • #107

    Just moving each pawn 1 square, and 1 pawn 2 squares????

  • #108

    another stupid puzzle of a board that would NEVER happen!

  • #109

  • #110

    Because White will play f3 - halting the f-file.

    totally don't understand this puzzle.

  • #113

    I had to use a computer engine to figure out what's wrong with just playing 1.b5 first with the same intention of blocking the f, g, and h files, because it seems that after 1...f5 2.Kb4 g4 3.fxg4, no matter what black does those pawn will never get through, and white's king can dance between a4 and b4 as long as needed until black has no move but to retreat the black king.  What I missed was 1.b5 h4! and now the 2...f5 and 3...g4 push is unstoppable.
