This would usually be a draw except for the fact that black has an extra pawn on the board, which removes any stalemate tricks outright. Sad.

White will win

I input the position into an endgame  database, and it should be a draw.

White wins by 1.Qc2!!

Unfortunately, this move is slightly illegal...

And, since the c5 pawn guards the critical b4 square, white has no way to keep Black's king cornered. A draw.

I thought it was a win until I read pren. What is the reason for the b4? I should know but don't
