Proper daily puzzle of pogosyants

  • #1

    Here it is,

    in case starting board mucked your one up as well.Cool

    one on the top is the proper one.

  • #2

    This doesn't appear to be a puzzle as much as a "guess where black messes up and move around frantically until then"

  • #3

    1. Ke6, Kd8 2. Kd5, Kxd7 3. b6 wins

    or 2 ... Kc7 3. d8Q+, Kxd8 3. Kc6 Kc8 4. b6 Kb8 5. b7

    this follows with 1b6+??:

  • #5

    There really doesn't seem to be any way to win?
  • #6

    It's a draw...

  • #7

    Black's king wanted to lose...

    VictorChess has got it.

  • #10

    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.

  • #11

    Good stuff :-)

    Nice puzzles & variations.

    SZ.

  • #14

    The solutions are easily checked with an endgame database.

  • #15

    I like how black randomly plays 10... Kc8

  • #16

    Not random - it's forced if the BK wants to stay near the pawn. 

  • #17

    I solved it looking at the example on the homepage ROTFLOL easy as pie

  • #18

    Victorchess has the correct answer to the puzzle, this way white does not win just beacuse black made a stupid move....

  • #19
