     ts way more complicated then that.

    Draw.  Here are black's best tries.

     

  • #45

    obvious win for WHITE because... pawn takes knight mate

  • #46

    Maybe I'm just slow, but why doesn't this work?

    1. c7   nfd6

    2. c8=B (Or Q or whatever)  Bd4!

    BxB7 isn't Checkmate, and Nxb7 isn't stalemate because the bishop isn't guarding b8 anymore.

    Obviously there are a bunch of variations white can play out, but with the huge lead in material it's a clear win for black. 

    So what am I missing? : D
