Here it is,
in case starting board mucked your one up as well.
one on the top is the proper one.
This doesn't appear to be a puzzle as much as a "guess where black messes up and move around frantically until then"
1. Ke6, Kd8 2. Kd5, Kxd7 3. b6 wins
or 2 ... Kc7 3. d8Q+, Kxd8 3. Kc6 Kc8 4. b6 Kb8 5. b7
1. b6+ wins...
this follows with 1b6+??:
It's a draw...
Black's king wanted to lose...
VictorChess has got it.
Victor has it. The win is simple, really. After 1. Ke6 Kd8 (forced) 2. Kd5 Kxd7 (forced), white just needs to maintain the opposition and promote his last pawn.
Good stuff :-)
Nice puzzles & variations.
The solutions are easily checked with an endgame database.
I like how black randomly plays 10... Kc8
Not random - it's forced if the BK wants to stay near the pawn.
I solved it looking at the example on the homepage ROTFLOL easy as pie
Victorchess has the correct answer to the puzzle, this way white does not win just beacuse black made a stupid move....
Nice puzzle; nice options posted too.
Thats the one!!
