Can you see more than 100 moves ahead ?

    Except, this isn't a win. It's a draw. The 50 move rule would kick in in the middle of this puzzle, and... draw.

    No, there would be pawn moves, therefore nullifying the 50 move rule.

    The one thing you guys should think about is that both pieces are useless.

    Every time the kings loop around, black is in zugzwang, so he moves a pawn, which resets the move count. That's a good reason the 50 move rule shouldn't exist. Lets say in a position with no pawns, just pieces, there are some endgames that take up to 551 moves to force mate with NO PAWNS or CAPTURES.
